  • I also called and spoke to Howard, but I contacted the department directly. I believe I spoke to the chair and she seemed surprised that the graduate school didn't already notify me that I wasn't accepted. This was a very annoying experience, after having hearing different information. Originally the grad school told me they were definitely sending out letters.

  • Person on the phone said the graduate school has received decisions and that they will be sending physical letters to the address listed on the application. They are not allowed to say anything over the phone. The department will not give out any information either. They said it is the graduate school's responsibility to do so.
