Why do some colleges take so long to give you an answer?

  1. I have been waiting since January for an answer from my 1st choice college. I had an interview two weeks ago and thought it went well and was supposed to receive an answer by today but I haven't. Does anyone know what goes into the admissions process? Preferably Jefferson University?

    I feel your pain. I can only assume that they make you wait so long to avoid mistakes in the selection process.
    Best of luck to you in getting in to your first choice school .
    I hope you hear something soon.

    I feel your pain. I keep checking my mail every single day. It is getting depressing when there is no letter or anything! Good luck to you.

    It's funny how some schools tell you within 3 weeks and some take months...OU took forever so I feel your pain too.

    Thanks for your reply, How long did you have to wait for OU to respond?
