    Did anyone get this email 2 weeks ago:


    Dear Applicant,

    Please accept our apology in updating you regarding the status of your application. Our admissions committee is working diligently to review each candidate’s file. We will send you an update no later than Friday, February 16, 2007.


    I called them and got no information... Has anyone heard anything update-wise?

    Is this their subtle hint at rejections?:confused:

    I received an interview invite via email on Monday. The interview is for March 13, which is pretty late. I'm probably just interviewing for the waitlist.

    Go to the interview, it's not for a waitlist spot. They only interviewed 3 groups of ppl so far. I interviewed 2/10 which was the third group and there was 24 ppl I believe. There was probably less on the other days since those days were weekdays. They said they were going to interview about 120 people for 25 spots. Normally schools accept double of the actual class size so the odds are not too bad, but it's a crapshoot too!

    Drew is a great program if you really have your heart set on the underserved. Students and staff were happy. It seems like there are many advantages to being in the program vs. regular UCLA too.

    So bottom line - it's not a lost cause! :)

    :luck:

    Hey kc222, I interviewed on the same day! :)
    Did they ever mention when they would begin informing us of our post-interview status?

    I hate the fact that Drew makes students wait so long for a decision. They perhaps have an admisiions committe the size of any other school and interview far less students. Yes the class size is very small, but the wait is killer on the students. The thing is you can serve the undersaerved regardless of your school. I used to love Drew, but after going through the process with the school, that love affair is tragically over. good luck to you all whom are applying this year.

    Do any of you guys know how we'll find out if we're accepted (email, phone call, letter, etc?) I interviewed Jan. 20th and still waiting to hear back. Any news would help :)

    From what I've seen on the other threads, looks like they call you if you are accepted.
    And they did tell us they accept about 40-50 people for the 24 (25?) spots. They didn't tell us when we could expect to hear something though.
    And the waiting begins....

    Diversity was great...people from different parts, did different things. They do a great job of screening for like minded people in regards to their mission statement.

    The class size is 24 and schools typically accept double that size. For whatever reason, some people go elsewhere but Drew is definitely a 24 person class.

    I also heard that the first batch of decisions will go out in early March.

    :luck:
