Why haven't I heard from Rutgers?

I applied to Rutger's PhD history program and still haven't gotten word a decision.  The results search tells me that people have been accepted to the program and have also been asked to interview but I haven't heard anything.

It's really making me nervous.  Thoughts?

I'm in the same situation with a different school. I want to email to ask if they have any sort of timeframe as to when all notices will be sent out, but their FAQ basically states "You'll know by April 15th." I don't want to annoy them, but I may email them today.

I'm in a similar boat. In my case, I know that at least three people all received an invitation to interview on the same day. I'm also told that the email was in a "batch" format, as in "dear applicant, we would like to invite you..." as opposed to a personal email for an interview from a POI. I also know that all final-round applicants are interviewed. 

 

this leads me to believe that I've been rejected. I called the school and all they would say is, "anything could happen, we'll let you know before the end of February." I'm 99.99% sure I won't get an offer. I've crossed it off my list.

I applied for a completely different program, but I haven't heard from them either--it's been more than three months! I feel like it's a rejection according to the results page but I'd like to know soon because the wait is killing me :(

I applied to another program, and I still haven't heard back. I'm worried that the department/university does not have much funding right now... I wish they would let me know so I can move on if I need to, but the deadline was December 1st and nothing yet. Oh well, we'll know when we know!

I'm not sure why they don't send out the rejections earlier, but I'm 99% sure all the acceptances have been sent out. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! In the past, rejections tend to go out towards the end of the first week in March.

 

The information on their website seems to be way out of date. I was terrified because they mentioned an interview but there was no interview involved at all in the process (for me at least).
