LONG WAITS FOR DECISIONS -- 4 MONTHS NOW!!
« on: February 27, 2006, 11:32:04 AM »
Hey I was wondering how unusual this might be.   I am still waiting on 7-8 schools for 4 months now.  I applied in late October.  Is this something I should be concerned about ?

I would be - I'd call the schools and make sure they have the correct contact information for you; if it was one or two schools, perhaps I would understand, but with 7-8, that sounds fishy to me . . .

Guess who's coming to dinner?!?

I'm a little worried too, I have 13 still out there, but I think the UC system is just taking a long time...especially with the rejections  :-\ 

Anyways I would call, I've called most of them and they ust say the decision will be made soon or some other corny line

I've been complete at Stanford since 11/7 and have not heard back yet.  It's driving me nuts.

I'm waiting on 6 of my 23 (i know, way too many schools) still, and I applied in mid October.  It is crazy to think it has been over 4 months now.  I don't feel like calling the schools and bothering them because I know how stressed and busy they are at this time of year.  If I still haven't heard anything by mid-march, then they will be getting calls from me.   mjca3: we have some of the same schools in common that we are waiting from, so I wouldn't be too worried.

I have a few that have been taking forever, also. I hadn't heard from Penn for 13 weeks, and their website says that decisions are made within 6-8, if not "much sooner."
I was debating emailing to see what was up - and then I got in!

So the long wait doesn't necessary mean bad news.
