What should I do?

At this point, I'm still waitlisted for an interview at two schools (yea...still). Neither have answered my recent email I sent a week ago, in which I asked for an update (so of course, in GradCafe fashion, I've assumed the worst). I haven't seen anyone post their offers for either school, despite both schools saying they've been sent out. I feel completely in the dark. At this point, I'm unsure if this means my chances are nonexistent. Luckily, I have a great job in my field so this doesn't feel like a death sentence to my future. But, I'm wondering what I should do next with both schools. Should I sit tight? Resend my email? Send a different email asking my chances? At this point, I'm not even sure if there's much to lose anyway :/

Ps- Please send suggestions; not snarky comments (that's of course if you're a snarky comment sender lol).

That's a shitty situation, I'm sorry it's happening to you.

In your position I'd sit tight and wait. You've already e-mailed them and, unless there's another address you can contact that you haven't before, I don't see much good coming out of resending your e-mail.

Good luck.

Thank you the wishes and advice!! I think I may just sit tight.

Who did you email? Just curious. It's not cool they don't answer.

However, I'd also assume for the worst tbh this late in the cycle. It can only be a pleasant surprise otherwise.

Yeap! That's a huge factor in why I've assumed the worst. But, I emailed both Admins. I assumed it was because of Spring Break but it turns out SB had passed weeks ago for them. So maybe I'm annoying them. Maybe it's a passive/early sign that they'll be rejecting me. Idk.

Could also be that they're just late for real. I had my update on monday that I'm waitlisted (and then yesterday my POI wrote that he's still very interested - so then why waitlist me lol). OK the grad officer emailed me back though. Maybe they have too much going on atm. Just sit and wait. Results will come eventually.
