    So i've gone on 4 interviews so far but i'm still waiting to hear back from 19 other schools. Anyone in the same boat with silence from across the board?

    I haven't counted but I'm waiting on at least 10. I am chalking them up to silent rejections at this point. I might get incredibly lucky and score another 1-2 interviews, but that's doubtful.

    Still waiting for post-secondary responses from 10 schools and 4 post-interview. No in-state (Cali) love, either. The silence is deafening!

    Applied to 13. Down to 9. Silence at 8. 1 Interview and Waitlist (In Sept/Oct).

    Applied 2 days after opening...this thing is brutal. I remember being stressed and wary back in September...now I don't know what I feel. I have begun to check my email a little less though.

    I'm waiting on ??? schools. The trick is to not even keep track. There are a few schools that I care about and stay in touch with and I know what's going on there. For all the other schools, I just let them sort it out and notify me of stuff. It is less stressful by far this way (I briefly tried caring about every school's status in the beginning of the cycle).

    At the same time, I know that it's impossible to avoid thinking about it sometimes... especially if you haven't earned that first acceptance yet.

    I'm still waiting on 9 schools, with 3 rejections, 1 acceptance and 2 pending interviews. Had a later app though.

    What did you mean by "staying in touch" with certain schools? Is it worthwhile contacting top choice schools about the status of your application other than for peace of mind?
