How should I word status inquiry letter?

Recommended Posts

I would just be direct and to the point:

Dear Prof:

I would like an update on my application status. (If you interviewed with them: I really enjoyed seeing your campus/meeting Prof. So-and-so/getting a better feel for your program. If you didn't interview: I am still very interested in attending your program because [insert short reason]). I have already heard back from several schools, and I hope to hear back from yours soon in order to weigh my options.

Thank you for your time.

I would just like to add that admissions get emails like this all the time, so there is no point in being coy or long-winded. If you are writing to an actual professor that you could be working with, still keep the letter brief and to the point. You might mention why you want to work with them (briefly, they are very busy as well).
