    Has anyone who interviewed here already sent a letter of continued interest? If so, how long did you wait after interviewing?

    I interviewed on 9/19, and I sent a letter of continued interest earlier this week!

    Just got an email from MSTP saying a decision has been made but letters have not yet been sent out due to a technical delay and that they hope to send the emails in the next couple of weeks.

    Why does this feel like a R coming my way...

    I don't know if they call for acceptances but, since most places seem to do that, I'm not gonna hold my breath :(

    Got something similar for MD just now. I don’t think it’s an R they send out emails first for everything. Ours didn’t explicitly say the decisions had been made though but I’m sure they have

    Just an FYI, they aren't receptive to ITA requests.

    They said that they strictly communicate initially through email, even acceptances!

    Is it worth it to send a post-interview update at this time? Or wait until acceptances start coming out? (interviewed early October)

    They’ve most likely already made their November decision for acceptance or February deferment. Personally, I think it would be best to wait a month or so.

    I'm not sure if it varies, but they responded fairly quickly to my email when I emailed them.

    Does anyone know how to send updates? I know they don't have a traditional portal, so is there an email you guys have been sending updates to?

    For anyone who's interviewed, how long did it take you to get to O'Hare from Northwestern?

    If the day ends at 3PM would a 630PM flight be cutting it close?

    I’m from the area, if you leave the school at 3:30 pm, traffic starts at around 4:30, I think you could make it to ohare by 5:30

    Sorry if this is nit picky, but did you write the update in the body of the email or attach it as a word document?
