    I haven’t! But it’s probably because of the mistake I made on my end. I barely sent them my supporting documents through mail two weeks ago because I uploaded them online instead since Charles the admission counselor said it was fine. So I have yet to hear back from them, even though I got verified 10/4.

    How about you?

    I have not heard back from them except for getting a confirmation after submitting the application. Do you know if they do interviews?

    It went really well! The admissions people are awesome and the faculty is top notch. The interview itself was pretty laid back. They really sold me on the program.

    Generic question: for those who have been accepted into a program, how long do you have to respond with the deposit? Im nervous about getting accepted to a program but waiting for a response from another.

    I was given about a month. I was told that this is generally a standard time frame.

    Hi! I was in the afternoon group. I think it went well. They made it so easy to feel comfortable. I loved meeting the current students, too. I think all of the applicants in my group were great. I'll be excited to hear back about decisions in a few weeks.
