    Hey all,
    Has anyone who interviewed mid-January heard back from UCSD recently? My interview was Jan 14, and I seem to remember that they said it should take around 4 weeks for them to get back to us. . .

    Hey alphacentauri,

    I also interviewed Jan. 14th, and was put in the acceptable pool in a letter dated Jan. 31.
    Who were you at the interview? :) (PM me if you want)

    So has anyone else not heard back from UCSD within a month? Should I expect a rejection? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    Yes I was really surprised and pleased with their promptness. The email was a shock too. I called back and was put on hold for like 5 minutes (it was the longest 5 minutes of my life). Anyway, I interviewed mid-december and received the notice early January. So it's less than a month actually. Damn they're fast

    I got official word from someone at the admissions office. They met this past Monday to decide the fate of many, including me (I interviewed in Jan 20-something). However, not everyone they intended to review was reviewed. They take a bunch of files, but they don't get through all of them. They didn't get to me, but they'll meet again in two weeks.
