Confusion About New School's Notifications:
Re: [hamholio] Spots Now Available
[In reply to]
I am sorry if I am posting this in the wrong way - I only know how to "reply", not sure how to start a new message!
I would like to know if anyone else out there is confused about the status of their New School MFA application.
I applied (Poetry) and as of end of March had still not heard anything from them. So, I called them beginning of April. They said that my application was still "under review." So, I waited about a week, and e-mailed, and was told it was still "under review." Then today I telephoned again, and was again told that no decision has been made and my application remains "under review in the department."
Is this the same as being "wait-listed"? (Nobody from New School has mentioned the word "wait-list" to me.) I have seen that others on this electronic list have received definite rejections, acceptances, and wait-lists. How can my application still be under review this late? (I submitted it before the Jan. 15 deadline.)
I am really confused: can anyone offer any insight as to what might be going on? Should I anticipate that I will hear from them before April 15? (The person I spoke with on the phone did not offer a date by which a decision would definitely be made.)
Thanks for any input, and best wishes to all.
