    Hi All,

    As you know, there are schools that do NOT want us calling them about status updates, etc... so in the interests of preventing others from making complete fools of themselves let's make a list of these schools.

    Thanks!

    SLU has a really fast email turnaround time. I emailed them last night and they emailed me back today with actual info. I emailed [email protected].

    Maybe that's the case post- interview. I'm actually referring to per-interview so their policy might be a little different. Any thoughts?

    Stanford, for-get it. You get voicemail, someone who works down the hall, or someone in the office who asks: "why are you calling us? have you looked on the website?!"

    NYU: heavy accents, unfriendly, student worker run and strangely dressed.

    OHSU has a secret phone number that puts you in contact with a real person who will tell you about your application.

    After you've interviewed, UCSF does not want you calling them (i don't know about before, they just told us this at the interview.)
