@Sea_Ashley:  Unless you have a contact point there (like a professor you were hoping to work with, with an established line of communication) then unfortunately it sounds like you just need to wait it out :/ I’ve totally been where you are and it really sucks having 100% no idea where you’ll be living in just a few months from now. Hang in there!

Sounds to me like you may be on a back-up list depending on the first round of offers. Or something might be have gotten lost in the mail, not properly sent, etc. so you might want to follow up just in case.

hmm that’s odd that neither of those things happened to you…though there might be a delay depending how recent they got their letter or call. I would call and follow up and ensure that they received your full application (even though you know they did) and the status so that you can maybe get an idea of what’s going on. I think that would be totally acceptable.

@Sea_Ashley:  I would guess hearing nothing from the UNI is better than getting a rejection letter. But I wouldn’t be able to wait either and would probably call or email to follow up.

My guess would be they are in the process of interviews and just haven’t gotten to your application yet.

 

Good luck!!

I would wait depending on when the cut off for admissions is some schools wait until they have all applications before calling back for interviews. The school I went to interviewed me in June an school started in August so some just take longer for their admissions process.

@Sea_Ashley:  It means you are in the second tier– you aren’t rejected, but you weren’t called for the first round of the interviews. If they fill up the spots with the first tier, you’ll get a rejection letter. If they have extra space, you may get a call for a last minute interview. This happened with my friend–she got an interview about 2 days before their deadline for people to commit to their program.
