MPH Contact Dept. Admissions?

    I applied to a graduate program in two departments (dual concentration) approximately 5 weeks ago according to the eMail they sent me. A decision takes 2-3 weeks and I received acceptance from one department about 10 days ago. After contacting the grad. admissions department they told me who to contact in the second department, which I did through eMail.

    That person informed that a decision would be made later that day and to contact them then, which I did. 3 days later no decision and no reply...

    How should I go about handling this? Do I contact the person again?

    I don't want to come across as impatient and torpedo my chances with this second department but I would like to at least get some sort of timeline.
