Any thoughts on contacting a program about the status of your application and letting them know you are especially interested in them? Do you suggest email or calling them and what do you suggest saying?

Members don't see this ad.
Would you not want to wait till after the MSPE have been released. ... which I guess is tomorrow ??? Its a question I would love to know the answer too as well as I am not sure if programs might get "pissed off" if I contacted them.

I have not contacted any programs yet but I did receive a general email from Mount Siani in Chicago pretty much telling people to "shut up and not call them" .... thought that email was a little bit rude !!!

None the less would love to know if people are contacting programs !!
yeah i was going to wait at least a week but i knew some people had interviews at this program so that's what prompted the question :)
