    lelolai-

    Sorry, didn't see this thread right away. It's not unusual to not be able to log on at this time! Everybody seems to want to log on to check and the adcom is starting to go over applicants to interview. Also, they tend to take the system down at times as well. Try logging on late at night, early morning, etc.

    Don't worry, you will hear from them. Patience is a virtue and TU is not always lightning fast, so be forewarned. As I have mentioned before, they are short-staffed and do not always return phone calls/emails promptly. This is NOT to say that they are uncaring or rude...simply that they are short-staffed and have other duties as well and cannot return every anxious phone call or email.

    If your anxiety is due to something such as missing transcripts, test scores, etc. then by all means call or email. If not, then be patient. News will be forthcoming. They usually send out interview offers all at once.

    Good luck:luck:

    Hello all.. I applied to Tuskegee as well and got a email back in October stating I was missing my transcript (stupid school didn't send it out).. But I got that situation handled and haven't heard anything from the school since. One of my friends whose in the class of '12 told me to go email Dr. Eljack himself :laugh: this week to find out what's going on.. I go to a HBCU for undergrad so I'm familiar with slow administration.. but it's still nerve wracking..

    Ok, so I got an e-mail today saying that my application was passed to the committee and they would update my status late January/early February. I'm unsure if this means that I will get an interview or not. I guess I'll just wait it out. Did anyone else receive an e-mail?

    You'll be fine!! My vet suggested that I apply to Tuskegee. Some of her professors that she enjoyed moved from Auburn to there.

    Good luck!!

    Well, Praise the Lord!! Got mine to! Congrats to you others!

    Thank you twelvetigers, but this is just interviews. We still have to anxiously await for acceptances. Maybe your clairvoyant! That'd be nice.

    Ohh, I see. I thought it was further ahead than that. Well, add it to the interview thread, and I hope I have a bit of clairvoyance on your behalf. :)

    yay! thanks for letting us know, GACowgirl. I can't open up the invitation letter though, is anyone else having problems with it, or can you post it here? when I click on the button on the right it just reloads the application status page.

    I've changed my date 3 times!! I am sticking with the 17th. I am going to drive from there to Mississippi for my interview the 18th. It will save me a few hours on the road and gas.

    Does anyone else find the website difficult to navigate? I have been searching, with no avail, for the last 2 hours for the curriculum at the school!:scared: I just can't seem to find anything on it. Let me know if anyone knows where it is.

    thanks lelolai!!! it's soooo strange, the letter still isn't showing up. it DOES say "Invited for interview; Click Invitation Letter". I don't know why it's not showing up...i've tried on 2 computers. should I email someone in case it's a mistake OR anyone else having the same problem?

    For those of you that received interviews at Tuskegee, did you just submit the date that you wanted on the status page? I am just making sure that I don't need to call admissions and confirm. They gave me a time stating 8-12 on the day I requested. Also, have you made reservations if you are planning on staying overnight? Thanks for the help!

    I haven't made my reservations yet. Have you? How much is the on-campus hotel? I'm in GA as well, but it will take 2 hours to get there from where I am (according to mapquest), so I'm not going to drive there that morning. I think they updated the status page, so you don't have to call. Mine says "Called For Interview Feb. 17, 8:00-12:30" Instead of "Invited for interview" and the date I selected. They are supposed to be sending a package in the mail, according to the letter on the admissions page.

    Good Luck!!

    I have not made reservations yet; I guess I will tomorrow! I emailed Terri Thompson and got an immediate response email saying that I was confirmed and that more info will be sent when the time gets closer...Sounds good to me! I live about 25 minutes from Macon, so I guess I am like two hours from Tuskegee. We are going to leave on Thurs. evening when I finish with classes (my interview is Friday)..got a good ol' Biotechnology exam that day! Well good look at your interview!! :luck::luck::luck::luck:

    I am new here. I haven't found out anything either. I think the wait is the worst part of the whole process. Hope we all hear good news.

    By my count it's mid-March and there's no news... I half wanna call TU and see what's going on... anyone know anything about when we're supposed to hear back? They had told me mid-March at my interview and that it would be via letter/the status page... but nothing has changed ... maybe I should wait a few more days and then call?

    I talked to the admissions office this morning. I was told that about 75% of the letters have been mailed. The website will also be update for the acceptance/rejections. Alternates will not receive a hard copy letter but the website will be updated letting them know and letters will follow around 4/15/09. They still have about five interviews to do :)confused:) and that is why this process is really slow right now. I hope this information helps.
