Anyone else interview in September and still haven’t heard back? 🤔

Is it worth sending an update letter/LOI at this point? I have 2 papers I’ll be submitting in the next few weeks (which I won’t include, probably), but I’m thinking I would restate my commitment to service and tell them about taking Medical Spanish this semester (as a post-grad).

Definitely can't hurt and maybe phrase it like "Pritzker's on going commitment to service and social health, which paralleles my own motivations, further reinforces UCM as my top choice program". Weave your interest with their mission statement and with your accomplishments is what I recommend. Also, I would mention the 2 upcoming publications.

Based on previous years, do we think decisions might come out this week?
I'm actually a little surprised this thread isn't going crazy with trying to predict when the big wave results are coming out. I was hoping there would be some conjecture by some stressed-out applicant who is trying to analyze what admissions had said with past acceptance waves lol... not that I wish for any of you to actually have that level of stress <3
 
hopefully this means we are all at peace with where we are (or just too tired to think anymore, much more likely)

I just missed a call from my interviewer!!
A!!!!! I definitely thought I didn't do well interview-wise so this is a shock!!

Edit: Also, interviewed in October! Since I wasn't in the last few waves, I thought it was over - I'm putting this here for future readers so you know that even if you interviewed earlier and didn't get in the first 2 waves, it'll be alright!!

Do they make all the calls in one day? I am guessting if you don’t hear till 3/12, you’d be either rejected or waitlisted :(
Interviewed in Aug
 
Any other August or September interviewers heard nothing yet? It looks like a lot of the recent waves have been from more recent interviews, so I'm not hopeful

Yep, interviewed in Sept here and nothing. My interviewer responded to my thank you and said “Pritzker would be lucky to recruit you” so I guess that doesn’t mean much lol
