Anyone know how interviews for Miami go? I thought they’re usually for scholarships but I applied 10/31 and haven’t gotten admitted yet but got an invite for an interview.
12:43
@Tide0413: Have you called them? That seems like an oddly long time to wait for a decision
im thinking of calling them. its been more than 12 weeks for me
I even emailed them confirming they're not missing any files of mine that's delaying my decision. said they're just waiting on a "committee review"
12:44
@WorriedGuardedPorcupine: Is your file at least under review?
I've called twice. Very kind, told me last week that I should hear by the end of this current week

15:11
@LegalBlondie: I was thinking of sending them LOCI but I’ve heard some schools don’t prefer that until they’ve sent the decision out so I’ve been hesitant. Maybe I’ll give them a call to see, especially if they’re nice about it haha

Did UMiami release a bunch today?
MiniFightingSquid
15:21
does anyone know when schollys will release?
15:32
They've already started but will continue to release over the next few weeks (fingers crossed)
yeah, @tide0413 , each time I have called (twice) they've said "we appreciate your continued interest, and we will mark it down on your account!"
16:56
@Tide0413: I would do a LOCI for a waitlist maybe? If you have not called them already, do so tomorrow. I have called a couple of times and they truly are the nicest people who are very willing to help. Since the 12 weeks has passed, calling might be best
