Asked for Dean McGahee, the man answering says, "Whose calling?" I identify myself and he asks if I'm calling regarding my application and he says "Yes?" Never affirms whether it's him or not
I tell him that I was instructed to reaffirm my interest by calling periodically and he says, "Um I don't know why they'd tell you that when the letter says the exact opposite. What's your name?", looks up my file, and says "You're still on hold. You should wait until you receive some kind of letter or something saying there's been movement from the waitlist or a change before calling."
I inform "him" of the rest of my conversation with the woman 2 weeks ago (LOR, LOCI) and asked if they were received. "Well to answer that I would have to go through all the emails, and I just don't have the time to do that now. Just assume that if you sent it that it will be added to your file."
The kick in the teeth: I ask if there's been movement from the waitlist and when does he expect any changes: "6-8 weeks."
