Ok, just called the office. I was told that the decisions were sent out yesterday, but was then asked for my name and put me on hold. I thought for a moment that she might come back and tell me I had been rejected right over the phone...
But then Samuel Kim (I'm assuming) came on the phone, and I told him that several of us Spring '10 re-applications hadn't heard anything yet. He told me that there was a 'strange little hiccup' in the system and that we will know our decisions by today.
After receiving my mail today and getting nothing again, I called USC and got the same thing as Jamesc. They asked for my name, transfered me and asked for the name again. Than he (Kim) said they will send out letters/emails today or at the latest Monday. It didn't feel right to me. I can handle rejection fine, I just wanna know already. Damn it.
I haven't heard anything yet and wasn't a spring applicant. Strangely enough in the last week my "photo essay" or whatever it's called has been getting hits...and it's password protected. I don't know what that means but it sounds like maybe they are still figuring who gets waitlisted and out of those who gets spring admission? Speculation... These system glitches are very odd indeed...
Just curious for all those who are still waiting to hear back, when did you send in your application?
@brainwashed: If he said latest Monday... then I'm going to assume Monday.
@robot_m: A mini story, if you will:
I call in this morning and give them my name. The girl on staff looks me up in the system and sees... nothing. She then notifies the admissions director who has a "oh crap" moment. The 'glitch in the system' was that our applications weren't forwarded to the admissions staff. He calmly says, "We'll let you know by today", then scrambles afterwards to figure out what to do.
Of course LVN's acceptance + several first time applicants not hearing back preclude this possibility. Outside of the strange, 'hiccup in the system' remark, I'm hoping that the remaining people are on the brink of decision. But I guess only time will tell now.
It also seems like most of the acceptance/rejection emails go out towards the end of the work day (4-5pm PST). So crossing my fingers I'll receive some email in a few hours.
james and robot, that's been my paranoia all along!!! as we didn't have to resubmit online, i was super paranoid about he fact that they wouldn't get our stuff. i called awhile ago and they told me to email, which i did and they asked for my portfolio list again because it's the only thing i didn't resend. they thanked me and that was it.
