If you are referring to the wait-list email, then this is actually quite the contrary. The email's instructions stated to send a quickly reply to the message if you were still interested. It would seem exceptionally overzealous and unprofessional to not follow those instructions. Additionally, seeing as how the school has wait-listed a incredible amount of applicants, it's understandable that they may have not sent the confirmation email to everyone yet. A little patience might be okay here.
It was in reference to my particular situation where I contacted Dean Richard 2 weeks ago and haven't heard back. The out of the office reply message some people got today sounds like the one I received 2 weeks ago, and I was confused what I should do because I didn't interpret the wording to mean that I should reach out to her again. I agree calling in reference to the mass email would be annoying. I think I'll call Monday if I reach out to them at all
Also, in the mass email does the wording "by" the first week of May mean some offers will come before May/is that typical?
Yes, I was referring to djlmjs22's specific situation, not the waitlist e-mail.
