    Would it be ridiculous if I call them up and express my interest so they can at least give me a damn secondary? :(

    No, they explicitly said it was waitlist or rejection. But thanks for trying to keep the hope alive lol.

    I was on a cell phone in an area with not great service. I didn't really catch her name.

    Interviewed on 10/19. Anxiously hoping for a phone call. As someone born and raised in South Jersey I would be ecstatic to go here.

    If we don't get a call today didn't they basically imply that we are waitlisted?

    Does anyone know how long the interviews are meant to last? I know that the interviews are with two faculty members, but i haven't seen anything that specifies the interview length.

    Mine was with a faculty member and a student. It lasted about 45 mins and went a little over.

    I don't know what's going on with this school, but I have still not heard anything. I called early last week and got told to expect an email very soon (that would almost certainly be a WL or a rejection), but I haven't gotten anything.

    I had to call three times before I got someone on the phone. She said she's the only one in the office who answers the phones and isn't always in there.

    Chances aren’t great but not bad either. The stats are a little below for what they generally look for but if your extracirculars are with the underserved, that will give you a good boost. They’re also looking to expand student research with the next few classes so those experience will help. NJ ties also help a lot, especially if you’re form SJ. Keep your fingers crossed

    Literally just walked by the interviewees in room 522. Even waved. Everyone still has a chance, no matter the comm. delays.

    Anyone know anything about sending them updates? I didn't see anything about it on the portal.

    It would be nice if they would tell me whether I’ve been WLed or rejected, given that I’ve twice now been given a timeline for communication that didn’t happen.

    I called admissions awhile ago to ask and they said they don't accept updates. They said there is literally no way to even attach it to you file so its pointless to send.

    Finally heard. WL for me. Not great news, but not horrible. Apparently they have a lot of movement there.

    She told me they just take people off the priority list first. It says in the email that they take a lot of people off the WL every year, so if you end up on it, I'd keep up hope.

    Misread the email. It doesn't specifically say priority. It just says they take a lot of people, so my brain must have inserted that word in based on the phone convo I had with them.

    Does the WL email indicate priority for anyone? Or do theys start ranking the WL people later on in the cycle?

    WL as well; email did not indicate priorization...what I am wondering is if they actually rejected people or just waitlisted everyone

    I spoke to admissions and they did reject people. She also indicated that one of the waitlists gets a lot of movement, so I’m guessing if your email says they take a lot of people off the waitlist (like mine did) then you can take that at face value.
