    Interviewed late september. Have yet to hear back. Recently called in to Drexel and they said I will not hear back until next month.

    Did they give any indication as to why you weren't reviewed in the first batch? I was interviewed early October and am now wondering if I'll also be in the next month batch. But seems like they aren't going in chronological order with reviewing interviewees

    It may be that we were reviewed but they aren’t ready to make a decision to offer or reject. They’ll hold on to our apps until the next round to see how we compare to that pool. Just speculating though

    But then we would receive correspondence letting us know that we were deferred? At this point I'm just hoping that they aren't sending me a rejection through snail mail (because for some cruel reason a bunch of schools do that post-interview).

    It could be that we hear about the deferral today or tomorrow :( it seems like they are slowly but surely sending out emails

    Edit: could be that we get accepted today or tomorrow but I’m trying not to get my hopes up haha

    I just called the admissions office (interviewed early October), and they looked me up by AMCAS ID. I was told they have everything together and are just waiting on the admissions committee to make a vote and that I should be hearing back within the next week. So it looks like they are not reviewing in order, lets stay patient guys!

    Did you call the general office number or the number listed in the portal?

    Sorry to hear that. But from other comments it sounds like you’ll be re-reviewed at the next meeting so there is hope!

    What time did you get the email?

    I did some snooping around last year's thread and about 7 people got accepted after deferral. So there's hope.

    Possible explanation for why they aren't going in order: It's dependent on who your student interviewer was. Each decision requires the attendance of the student interviewer, and their schedules are difficult to accommodate.

    Maybe???

    Ooof just got deferred. Mid-september interview. Although I was pretty much expecting it at this point, it's still a bummer :confused:

    Just an FYI that there is another tab on the portal now where you check off to accept your deferred status (or withdraw your app).

    At this point I think not hearing at all is the best news (other than an acceptance, of course). I’d rather have not been reviewed at all vs. reviewed and deferred. But who knows. More emails still might be coming today.
