I need some help!

I have all of my applications in. However, there are two or three schools that I really want to go to. It seems to be taking them a long time to decide on me. Would it be helpful to contact the school and ask them about the progress of my app.

If you want to ask if you are complete, go ahead.  Do not, however, ask how long it will be before you get a decision.

If you know that you've gone complete at these schools, don't contact them yet.  All admissions committees are really busy right now because it's peak application season, and calling will only annoy them and slow down their work.  A lot of people haven't gotten decisions yet from schools where they went complete in November.  We're all anxious, but remember that "a long time" to us is not the same as "a long time" to adcoms.

Best of luck!
