  6. I interviewed in September (over a month ago) and haven't heard anything. Think I should contact admissions and ask for update about whether I'm still being considered?

    Does anybody know if they've given out most of their interviews already?

    Hi Doc,
    They will keep interviewing through early next year if they follow the same pattern they had last year.

    That might be a good idea! They said they would give updates after 2 weeks
     
  15. From last year's thread they give acceptances on Fridays and Mondays - will call if nothing by tomorrow afternoon.

    Still have some time. Historically, I've read that Umass is much slower than other schools in making decisions, which is a good thing since they thoroughly evaluate each app.

    For those of you who’ve had any movement from adcoms here, did you get an email because this is the least user friendly portal I’ve used. (Read: if they don’t send me an email, I will never find out)

    Hi Detective,
    They will send you an email. Sometimes it can take a while depending on where you are in the process.

    Hi I was at the same interview and got the same email. Are we supposed to send anything in response?

    No. They said at interviews they would be sending these every few weeks or so until a decision is made.

    After interview, what is the typical amount of time it takes umass to send an email saying that you are still under consideration etc.?

    I got an "under active consideration" email exactly one month after the interview (I on 9/17/18; email on 10/17/18). If it means anything, this is my second app cycle. UMass interviewed me last year as well but didn't get an update email until 4 MONTHS later (I around 9/25/17; email around 1/15/18).

    So is under active consideration a good sign maybe?

    We were told that we should expect to hear back every two weeks. I was wondering if I should contact them after I hit three weeks?

    I guess it depends on your definition of "good". It's certainly better than a rejection but it means that they've looked over your full app and aren't willing to accept you outright based on the pool you were compared with. From my understanding they just insert you into the next round of deliberations. If there's anything you can update them with that's of significance, I think now would be the time to do it, so that your app looks better compared to the next pool. I think based on what apindian said, we can assume he didn't get in after the "under active consideration" message but I'm not exactly sure how many do or what percentage does.
