    Accepted on Monday after receiving 'still under consideration' email on 10/17 and interviewing on 10/02.

    OOS but went to school in Boston and have been here for 5 years. After I got the email on 10/17, I wrote a letter of interest and just honestly conveyed how much I loved the school on my interview day and wanted to be here. Didn't sugar coat it, just gave the app updates I had and expressed my strong and sincere interest. For anyone else who really loved this school and got that same email, there's still hope - keep the faith and don't be afraid to let them know.

    Not usually a big forum guy, but I'm on my second cycle and I know from experience that a lot of people read these when they're looking for answers during this crazy process. Hope it helps someone!

    hey! From reading the 2017-2018 thread, it seems like "under consideration" actually means that they have not presented your case for deliberations yet, and when they present it they make a decision of acceptance/rejection/waitlist. Idk though this could just be a bunch of applicants talking in circles!

    Accepted today! Interviewed on 9/13 and received the still under consideration email on 10/17. Technically OOS resident but grew up in MA, family is still there, and qualify for IS tuition. Super excited!

    Hey, thanks for looking into that! That wasn’t my understanding from how they described it in their presentation on interview day but I may have misunderstood. Either way, i don’t think you can call it a “good” thing. At best it is totally neutral, in the sense that they just haven’t discussed your app at the meeting at all. Definitely better than a rejection!

    Not yet! Have you received an "under consideration" email? Because I haven't. I think we will hear back soon though because people who interviewed on 10/02 are getting acceptances!

    Biggest advice would be to just not stress too much. Just relax, be yourself, and answer honestly and completely. You won't believe me until after you interview, but they're actually kinda fun.

    sad day :(

    Considering many from the 8/20 group haven't heard anything I'd say it will be long after Thanksgiving

    You haven't heard anything from 8/20 at all? Not even a "still under consideration" type thing? They said to reach out if you do not hear from them to check the status so I would do that. It's been almost 3 months!

    Just got a "still under active consideration" email. Anyone else from 10/24 get that? Or from that date get an acceptance/rejection?

    Anyone who interviewed here remember how to send thank you note in? Is it thru the portal or emailing admissions directly?

    General question and I’m not sure where to post it... but since I’m a MA resident and praying for umass since I’m sitting on ZERO interviews, figured I’d ask it here. When do all schools typically stop sending interview invites? Does it vary from school to school? Just wondering when I should start really considering my plan B as a reality :(

    I interviewed the first day and haven't heard anything since the under review email in September. Is it appropriate to call inquiring about what's going on/ if no email in months means an R?
