guys,
I have a general question. Do people generally reach out or stay in touch with the school/admissions team once the interview has been done and you are awaiting decision?

Is it wise to keep in touch or is that an overkill even if you don't have any particular query? just curious.

They would have probably told you the tentative dates for decision during the interview. Therefore, asking for status would be a kill IMO.
Moreover, if you have a genuine query you should reach out to them without hesitation.

I submitted my Application on 1st oct but due to some issues my Application went into under review in 1st week of November but I haven't received any decision on it yet. No decision.
shall I contact the Smeal Admission committee??

Status under my Application page says that "The initial phase of the admission process has been completed. Your application is now pending review by the program/plan of study admissions committee. Please be patient; you will be contacted by the program/plan of study directly when a decision has been made."

What should i do guys?

rashimsethi

Did you try reaching out to adcom? I guess it is their responsibility to let the applicants know if they have a delay in communicating decisions. Now, especially since the deadline is over, you should send an email or telephone them.

I contacted the Adcom and his reasoning for delay was "ThanksGiving Holidays". He also said that before 25th Dec they (admission team) are planning to review all the applications and send interview invite for successful candidates.
