When should I call?

Postby acoon624 » Wed Mar 17, 2010 11:22 am

I applied to a school in Jan. and according to the online status checker, the file has been with the admissions committee since 2/17. There's also a disclaimer on top of the page saying that the file is with the admissions staff and that the process can 2 weeks to a month. It says if I haven't heard in 4 weeks to call them... it's been four weeks and I don't want to piss anyone off. Assuming I don't hear in the next couple days, when should I call?

I think you answered your own question. Give it a couple of days, call on Friday

YOU CAN CALL NOW. It wont piss them off, just ask respectfully what stage of the process your application is in. IT will not make them mad, they expect it.

yeah, why not? call now. It can't hurt, but it may help get you a decision faster.
