Should I call?

  1. I need yalls advice.

    My school is rolling admissions and I applied the last week in February. Well I called my school 3 weeks ago and the pre-admissions advisor said that my application was scheduled to be reviewed the first week of April. Well I called last Friday and she said my application was being reviewed (still). My question is should I call AGAIN this week? I don't want to be annoying but I WANT TO KNOW!!!!!

    What would you do?

    I would give it another week, especially with rolling admission. I applied to med school last year and had the same thing happen. I called every other friday - just to enough to keep in contact, but not enough to annoy anyone.

    I would first find out when they are going to send out the acceptance letters for the class as a whole, and then I would wait about 5 days after that date, and then call.

    Thats just it, they arent sending out letters as a whole. Rolling admissions means they accept as the applications come in. They have already accepte 75 out of the 110 spots available. Ugh- I hate waiting!

    Well, it's only the second week of April...give it another week or two...My first choice is also in a rolling basis, I sent my stuff the end of January, emailed them 3 weeks ago for a status and was told my file was being reviewed...This week, I emailed again and was told the same thing...HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO REVIEW A FILE!!!!! sorry, I'm calm now, but I do plan on emailing them again next week, so maybe I'm the last person that should be giving advice...:uhoh21:

    What???? That is crazy...so they are filling the slots on a first-come, first-serve basis? How are they controlling the flow of applications? How do they know who to admit before someone else?

    Just keep poking them in the eye about it LOL
    I applied to my school's nursing program and at first they said they'll notify people in March....well March came and went so I WENT to the nursing department and now they say they'll notify people the end of May :spin:
    That's actually better for me since by the beginning of May I will have completed my two last missing prerequisites and will be able to present them two more FAT Aaaaa's....hopefully those crusty, senile old men with wigs on the committee will be conscious enough to figure in my grades for those classes, I'll poke the admissions secretary in the eye about it, too.... I don't know.... I am Very calm since I realize it's out of my control ( after the early May eye-poking, LOL). I think it's all just a BIG MIND GAME that we need to learn how to win, or we'll all go crazy and I plan not to go crazy over it!
    I am at this point that if my GPA isn't good enough for them..... I'll just say "Oh well"......if one door shuts another one will open for me. Something meaningful has to be out there for me somewhere, and if it's not nursing then it will be something else. I really want to be in a hospital though but at my age I can't afford to get my BP up too high or I'd be there as a patient instead of being there as a nursing student
