Same situation...was thinking of sending an email. I applied ED, but after 2/1.
Personally I would not bother with an email, I tried that avenue and did not receive a response. I was sent an interview request last week of January, emailed them in mid-February, and called a week later. The lady I spoke with was extremely helpful, she told me that they contacted an initial interviewer and gave him a month to get in contact with me, which he failed to do, and then they moved on and found another individual (who has failed to contact me as well). They apparently try to give the initial interviewer as much time as possible before moving on, as finding a secondary person can be difficult/time consuming. The lady also said that the delay caused by the interviewer would be taken into account regarding acceptance/financial aid considerations, which I hope is true. I plan on calling back within the week, since it is getting to the point where the turnaround between the interview/potential acceptance/receipt of financial aid info will leave me with limited time until I need to commit to a school. I advise that you do the same, and perhaps gently suggest that they look for another interviewer due to the lack of contact from the first individual. If you have offers from other schools and perhaps want to use these admissions as leverage for financial aid (this does not apply with to ED post), it will certainly be to your benefit to try and expedite the process, and direct contact with the school seems like the only means to do so. Best of luck.
