Do people get let off the WL if they haven't given primary decisions to everyone who interviewed yet? Doesn't make sense to me... but then again, not much of this process does
 
Did anyone else get ghosted post-interview? I still haven't heard anything.

Haven’t heard anything since my interview in November. It’s strange given that people who interviewed in March have gotten A’s and WL’s. Am I at a higher consideration status than WL, or lower? Feels like they have already rejected me but are just holding me in limbo :/

It's interesting that no post-II R's are being reported because plenty had been reported on past threads by this time. I just wish they didn't tell us they don't do silent rejections when they do....

My hypothesis for why people with later interview dates get earlier decisions is that they may want to compare earlier interviewees to later ones to ensure that having a later interview date does not disadvantage you. Sometimes people get quick interview to decision turnarounds because the admissions committee may really love a candidate and not feel the need to wait and compare them to the rest of the pool.

NYU's process looks very similar in terms of later interviewees often getting post-II decisions before those who interviewed earlier, and this is the logic/explanation the dean provided. That being said NYU does communicate 3 weeks post-interview (either R or continued review) and wrapped up all decisions by mid-January. I feel very fortunate to have a school I'm pretty set on and am not necessarily holding out on UMass, but it definitely is frustrating that they're not giving people finality when in reality at this point probably not everyone is being considered.

I’d agree with that but a decent amt of people have gotten WL which seems to discount the idea that they’re doing some sort of cross season comparison. Idk though

Maybe cross season comparison for the WL?

Do they send out decisions all at once or throughout the day?

I did some ~ investigation ~ aka reading last year’s thread: there was a final wave of post-II R’s on Wed 4/26/23. Our corresponding Wednesday would be answers on 4/24 (if that’s their standard day)
what about the last friday?
 
Although I had heard UMass was slow to get back with decisions, I really didn't think they'd have the audacity to wait until the last possible Friday to give me an answer for an interview in September... Why it gotta be like this UMass?

The on-time deadline to submit the CSS profile is June 1 right? I didn't receive anything but also haven't submitted CSS Profile (only FAFSA) so that might be the reason

Post-II Rs have maybe started coming out/alr come out? Someone on the Reddit posted that they got one
 
there's an application action section on the portal and then you can accept or deny the waitlist spot
did your portal change after interviewing? Mine looks the same as when I submitted my secondary, but with an interview information tile. Under application progress says Application complete-> Under review

Yes, it changed after interviewing and it also changed when I got waitlisted
