    Has anyone heard anything in terms of acceptance, waitlist, or rejection from Rush yet? They said they would let us know before Thanksgiving...

    Thanks!

    I interviewed on 10/31/05. I was surprised that they promised such a quick turn around time!

    In terms of the best airport, it doesn't really matter if you are going straight there- if you take the el (you can just get off at the blue line Polk stop) you can either take the blue line directly from O'Hare or take the orange to the blue from Midway.

    How long from being completely "complete" until you got an interview for most people?

    If you interviewed around the end of October or early November, you should hear from Rush by this wed. I spoke with someone from the adm. office and they said the letters went out last friday. Good luck to everyone.

    I interview at Rush in a couple weeks. Do you have any advice? I read that they're big on ethical questions. I'm outta state too, and I don't understand why they take a large proportion of in-state people since they're a private school! Show some love for us poor Californians dammit! =P

    Congrats kattyboomboom! I am going crazy waiting! I was going to go to my parents' house for Thanksgiving straight from work tomorrow because I thought that if they mailed the letters on Friday I would have gotten it by now... Now I have to come home and wait for my mailman! For some reason, he keeps showing up later and later. It's killing me!!

    So I am beyond frustrated. According to this thread, the letters for those who interviewed on or before 11.2.05 were sent out on the Friday before Thanksgiving. I interviewed on 10.31.05, I live in Chicago, and I still haven't received anything! I emailed the office of admissions on Sunday and haven't gotten a reply.

    Could my letter have a) been lost in the mail or tied up in some sort of holiday mail craze, b) not sent because of bad news (even though at the interview they told us we would know before Thanksgiving whether it was an acceptance, rejection or hold), or c) not sent because the Admissions Committee just didn't get to it...

    Any comments, thoughts, support would be much appreciated! I really thought my interviews went well at Rush, so this is driving me nuts!

    Thanks :)

    Well, I can tell you that I interviewed 11/2, and I still haven't heard anything, and I too am wondering if I should be concerned about things getting lost in the mail...let me know what happens with you, but based on what you guys are saying I feel like if I haven't gotten the letter by the end of the week I'll give the admissions office a call. I just like to keep in mind that even if the letter does somehow get lost in the mail, it's not going to change the decision (just when you know about it, which is of course incredibly annoying!)

    Maybe some of you in the "early November" time frame missed the cutoff for the mailing date by a day or so. :( When they explained the admissions process, it sounded like there could be some variability in how long the interviewers took to turn in their feedback. Also, the adcom then has something like 5 days to vote--perhaps some people were easier to vote on (for positive or negative reasons) and were completed earlier, etc. Just one possible explanation for the delay! :oops: Good luck! :luck:
