    Hey...I had the same problem! I called Drexel Admissions (spoke to a very nice lady), explained my situation, and she said to submit an update and just select one of the other two options.

    We didn't discuss the logistics. Rather, I had already written an update/continued letter of interest, so that's what I submitted. May the odds be ever in our favor (especially this late in the game)! :)

    Yesterday around 3pm I got an II, but there was only one day available.
     
  9. There should be a wave of decisions released tomorrow right? Since they meet on Thursdays?

    I very much hope so. Today marks 6 weeks since my interview. Although, something tells me that if the adcom allows 6-8 weeks until reaching a decision, then they will probably take the full 8.

    Got deferred on Monday (3/13). Interviewed January 17, OOS. Does anyone know if there are any applicants who were rejected post interview? I just want to know if they defer most people who interview

    Is there actually any movement off the post-II deferred list here or am I just clinging onto false hopes :yeahright:
     
  23. Historically there has been a lot of movement! Look at the threads from the 2 previous cycles.

    Do they send letters in the mail if you get accepted or is all done by email?

    They send a letter in the mail too, the same one that’s in your portal under admissions decision

    I was rejected after my interview. I got my letter in the mail yesteday. My portal never changed. I was waitlisted here last year. This whole process is such a crapshoot. Who can figure it out?
     
  33. For those of us who interviewed around Jan 29th, tomorrow marks 7 weeks since the interview! I feel like we should hear something next week!!

    Is it worth it to submit a post interview update?

    Per MSAR:

    Typical number of waitlist positions: approximately 250

    Number of acceptance offers granted to applicants on the waitlist: 15

    There's a section called "Waitlist Information." Just search the word waitlist on the MSAR page.

    I'm not sure if 15 is a mistake or what because it seems unrealistically low.

    Drexel's page also says:

    "The waitlist is ranked by the Admissions Committee. If applicants are taken from the waitlist, they are called/emailed and asked to reply ASAP. Waitlisted applicants may send updates."

    Sorry to hear that. To some degree this whole process is so random that you can never predict how an admissions committee will respond to your application. But thank you for letting me know!

    They always have a second look. I attended it in 2016. I don’t think they originally going to have one this year because of scheduling but Kareem and Lisa seemed to have gotten that worked out.

    A friend of a friend’s little birdie told me that there has been a change in the attitude of the administration on outright waitlisting vs deferring in order to keep applicants from getting “upset at being waitlisted.”
