    It hasn't happened to me at one of my first choice schools...but if it were too I think I would just send them updated info to show I was still interested--Send them an official copy of my fall grades as well as a short one page letter describing my activities since my AMCAS submission. That way you are not blatantly saying anything but they are aware that you still are interested in the school and trying to keep up the good work! I would worry about how other types of letters might be interpreted...but I guess it depends on what you are comfortable with...good luck!!

    I'm on hold at Albany and they said to keep calling to check my status. Other schools may not be as applicant friendly though.

    Hey CU,

    How do you know that you are on hold at Albany? I have interviewed there too..and haven't received anything yet. When i called, I was told that my application is still "under consideration". I read in the interviewfeedback forum (last year's) that those who don't get an instant acceptance, are either rejected or held. When the waitlist is put together, they are supposed to let you know if they will select you for it or will no longer consider you. So..I am wondering if at this point we are waiting for the waitlist/eventually acceptance or acceptance directly? I figured that if they wanted to reject us..we would have heard in a couple of weeks. Does any of this make sense or am I way off? :(

    Thanks!
