Not sure how many seats are available...i read from another thread that there's only 7 seats left but I really don't believe that.

So even though Dr. M says you'll hear back in around 2 weeks time...it probabily takes a month's time for the letter to arrive.

Does Dr. M generally reply to e-mails regarding application status?

Are students with a late interview date (Jan/Feb) at a significant disadvantage when being reviewed for admissions?

And, do you think its appropriate to contact Dr. M while your app is under review (aside from a thank you note)??

I e-mailed Dr. M regarding my application status about 3 weeks ago and he never replied. My friend e-mailed him a week earlier than me asking about his application status and he had his secretary e-mail him back within a week...

I have no idea.

But if you do contact Dr. M...and got an answer....please let us know if you did it through e-mail or through phone.

Thanks a bunch
