It wouldn't hurt to find out the status of your application, lol. You could always just e-mail them, I e-mailed Kathleen Connor (firstname.lastname@example.org), she's a graduate admissions counselor, and she was very helpful in speeding up the application process. I submitted my application back in Sept. 2008, but they didn't start looking at applications until February 2009, so it took about a month to get them to look at my application and give me an answer.
Are you thinking of applying for univesity housing or getting an off campus apartment?? I'm going to try for university housing and if that fails, I may TRY and do the commute, but I'll also try and find something off campus if possible. We should definitely look into living together if you do choose to live in the city! We'll be able to help each other get through the rigorous program! :) I'll private message you my e-mail address/facebook link
as for computer science, I'm trying to find out if it's really necessary, and if it is, it looks like I'll be taking that class over the summer at a school nearby home, ugh, lol
