    Did you just withdraw your application from the secondary application / interview portal? Or did you e-mail admissions? I tried to withdraw my application from the secondary link but an error keeps showing up
     
  10. I was able to withdraw from the secondary portal. But if that’s not working for you, I would email them :)

    How often does Drexel send out acceptances/ rejections in a month? Will there be any more contact before April 30?

    Is there the hope to get an interview if you're on a pre-II hold?

    But they rejected other people. I just don’t deserve a real rejection?

    Has anybody who interviewed in march been accepted or has it been only deferred/rejected? Do you think we will hear back soon after traffic day?
