Can someone please tell me what's taking JHU so long to respond to me?

I completed my secondary on 8/11/02 and I haven't heard anything...I'm reading all of the rejections and still, no answer for me. My patience is growing thin. I call ed them once, and was told that my file was currently being screened. I didn't receive an email about a "completed file". And when I called as stated in an earlier thread, my file was incidentally on the screen. What do you guys think?

All I can recommend is patience. You cannot hurry them up and/or divine what they're thinking. At least they didn't tell you when you called that they weren't going to be offering you an interview (happened to me last year). They still took forever to send me word of that officially. Good luck, hope you get that interview! :)

Make sure your application is complete, then chill out.

It's still September. Applicants are interviewed through March. Relax, and realize that once your application is complete, the ball is in their court. Take it easy - they won't forget about you.
