Missing responses?


Recommended Posts

I have two programs to hear back from, yet browsing the results boards leads me to believe that both of these programs have made their decisions. I am waiting to hear back from Portland State University and EWU.

Does anyone know what it means if I haven't heard from these programs yet? I have received other communications from each school during the application process, so I know they should have my current email address.

I'm just nervous and a little frustrated, as I've only received negative news so far and I'm hoping for at least a waitlist somewhere. I know PSU (Portland) provided information about waitlist status (for those that heard back), but I am not sure about EWU.

Hi! I’m sorry I don’t have an answer for you, but I just wanted you to know you’re not alone- I’m in the same boat for Portland State University. I have one friend who heard back last Friday the 9th, and have been contemplating if distance is a factor because he’s an in-state student. 

Either way, I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one confused and hope you can get some comfort too. Best wishes!

I suppise I feel a little better that I'm not the only one.

Although I can tell you that it isn't the distance, I'm currently attending the post-bacc program at PSU.

I emailed the department today, so maybe there will be an update tomorrow.

Thanks, I have been checking there as well. Here is my update on PSU (Portland State):

"We are reviewing all applications to our program that met BOTH of the following guidelines:

  • Status of COMPLETED or VERIFIED by midnight EST 1/15/2018.
  • Fully VERIFIED by 1/23/2018."

Apparently CSDCAS didn't verify my application until February 3, so it was not evaluated at all. I sent my transcripts before the deadline but they were not 'received' until after the 15th of January.

There is a way to check your application complete and verified dates, if you download the pdf application from CSDCAS.

It sucks to hear, but there is nothing I could have done personally. I have been so strapped financially I was unable to pay for transcripts or GRE scores at an earlier date.

Still holding out for EWU.

Thanks, that's my hope from EWU. So far it looks like the people that have heard back have all been accepted...I'm hoping that a lack of response means I'm at least on the waitlist somewhere.

@speechpathy I see that you applied to Maryville. Have you heard anything from them? I was told the university is "in the process" of notifying students a few days ago but have yet to hear anything! It's one of the last schools I have to hear from

So today I received an email about logging into the portal, but once I logged in there was no information. The email did not indicate whether I was accepted or not, so I'm pretty confused. I wonder if they are sending letters through the mail?

I didn’t even know there was a portal?! Is it just where you submitted the application? I didn’t get that email but that does sound super confusing haha I don’t know how they’re notifying but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in the mail. @speechpathy

@mirrorcat43 Did you have an interview with EWU?

Yes I had an interview, I thought it went OK but I had a cold and some brain fog, so it definitely could have been better. 

I eventually asked because I had other email issues, they said we should hear back next week about our status if we didn't get an offer this week.

I'm happy they responded, the program coordinator was really nice about it, although I'm bummed it means I'm on a waitlist at best.

I got waitlisted via email today. Did you hear from them today?

I also got waitlisted!

I got that email about the portal yesterday, although when I tried to set it up it said my information didn't match so I don't know. Is there anything on there that I really need at this point since I'm waitlisted?

Yeah same! It didn't have any info and nothing even popped up. I guess it's not important since we are waitlisted!
