That's got to be the lamest excuse I've heard for not telling anyone their status. April 16?bfollinprm wrote:UMD, I think. I emailed, and they responded with the following:No reason to hide acceptances, so....Dr [adcomm chair] does not want me to tell anyone until April 16 if they were admitted or not. You can contact him if you would like to check with him.
By the way, what a jerk the committee is for keeping rejections hidden. What for? I have most of a mind to withdraw all applications to places I haven't heard back from...At this point I'm not really interested in playing their stupid waiting games any longer.
I'm not going to tell you what to do, but if I were you, I'd withdraw completely. In my mind, if they are going to treat people like that, then they aren't worth it.
