Calling the Admissions Office
« on: March 24, 2005, 03:51:11 PM »
How often is to often to call admissions to check your application status?  Is once a week to much? Is twice a week to much? I am over anxious, but I don't want to piss anyone off either.  Maybe I should stop calling and just wait for the mail.  (But I must say, I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE)

Well, the first time you can say you "want to make sure you're complete," but what do you ask subsequently?

Well I have called to verify completion and they are all complete.  One complete for about 1 1/2 and the others about 1 month.  I have called each school twice after I found out my app was complete.  Do you think they keep records of each call?

I am not calling anymore, but don't these schools care that seat deposits are due soon.

Why should they care?  They have plenty of qualified applicants.  So what if they lose some b/c of seat deposits?  And yes, they do make notes of people calling.

Ok, thanks for your advice. I will stop harrassing the offices.
