Hi all, I got an interview from a top ivy university before 10 days. The prof was very happy with my application and said that I am a perfect match for the program. He said that i will hear back from the department around 20-25 this month about a decision on my application. he said that he will be in touch with me. I sent him an email after the interview telling him thanks for his time. I didnot get any reply back from him yet. Should I write back to him again since it has already been 10 days ? or should I just wait for him to get back to me ? If i should write how can i possibly start a conversation ?

Is it a negative thing when a prof says he will be in touch with me and if he is not ?

I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm in a very similar situation. I had a very positive phone interview with a prof (whom I had met at a couple of conferences) from Yale about two weeks ago. I emailed him back afterwards with one more question, and he hasn't gotten back to me. Realistically, at this time of year (and in general) these profs are so busy that these kinds of things are probably very low on their list. They might also enjoy keeping us in suspense, particularly if they expect to be delivering good news soon enough.

In summary: don't sweat it; you're probably in.
