  2. @Gamb1t - About Maryland - Decisions as in - were interviews out already? Any idea?
  3. @XTgo - I have no idea when they come up with results etc. and why they keep people hanging instead of just letting them know something - accepted/rejected/wait-listed. When I was applying for masters in the UK, I remember, they mailed me at different stages (all except Exeter, who accepted after ages and without an interview)... I think I made some serious mistake somewhere in the applications this time :/ Hope you hear positively from UCLA
  4. @Gamb1t, @XTgo - That's sad, but I guess it is right, if it has come from Dr. Feldshuh - I was, in fact, sort of anticipating the same, but saw a ray of hope yesterday when she said that - anyway! @starsloth fingers crossed for the interview results!
  5. Hi @XTgo My Cornell application status says 'in progress' and a friend who is there now asked the faculty just today - they said that the decisions are not out yet.

  7. Getting so busy in other work that I am afraid, if I really get an interview now, would I be able to do justice to it? Of course, keeping in mind how unlikely it is to get an interview after this point of time, I'd rather be busy - have wasted a lot of time waiting already! But five schools yet to respond (two rejections, one implied).

  12. Exactly my question - why shouldn't we be getting updates of what is happening? The status of applications just read 'in progress', like forever :/ I'm so tiered of waiting that I don't care if they are all rejections, I just want them quick!!
  13. @starsloth Welcome! Nice to know your interests! I am yet to hear back from 5 schools but I's already thinking about a 2nd round of applications too! I am not considering this to be a 'waiting period' anymore - just going about my work as usual, at least trying to!

  15. I just wish all the schools at least send their rejections so that I could get back to work without worrying. It is excruciating that they don't have specific dates by which they would respond and most graduate offices do not reply to mails :/ I'm completely okay with acceptances and rejections both, but I'm just tiered of waiting and worrying.
