As I mentioned before, I applied on 12/15 for R2, interviewed on 1/5, and just got the admit this morning!

Mine was also an conditional offer with the same requirements. I think it's normal.

Everyone who applied in R1 has received a response?

I am still "Under Review"

Does this mean I should be expecting a rejection pretty soon?

I had submitted my app on 7th october, got invited for interview on 15th dec, interviewed on 30th dec and got the admit offer on 9th jan.

I can only say this - there is hope until you officially get dinged. I had given up any hopes of being interviewed after not hearing from the school for more than 2 months.

Keep your fingers crossed. There's still a few days left. 13th Jan is the official deadline for interview notification.

aanchalsinha and versatile,

I am in the same boat; hence, I can understand your plight. It is quite frustrating to see the same old status - "Under Review" every time I log in. Hope it works out for all of us.

Cheers,
MS

aanchalsinha and 23may1984,

Its good to see that there are people with the same status, god knows when will this wait come to an end

I think there are only three days left now, rather two - Thursday and Friday.

Any chance we might not hear from the school by the deadline ? if yes, what does this silence indicate

When did u guys submit your apps - i submitted on 15th Nov., i mean just trying to co-relate dates.

Cheers

Versatile,

I second your thought completely. I submitted around the same time as you did – 1 or 2 days before the deadline. I really don’t know what to make of all this. I mean earlier I had sort of written off my chances of getting an interview call from HKUST, but then I came across you guys. So there is a slim chance that this might be a procedural delay. The bright side is that we’ll know soon; I hope this doesn’t drag beyond the 13th….

Cheers!!!

Guys,

I am so relieved to learn that there are others in the same position. I submitted the application on the 14th of Nov. I am trying not to think about it too much as it might affect my mental sanity!! But 23May1984, your right, the brighter side is that we should here soon. Well it's Thursday here already so we have time till tomorrow. I wonder what happens if we don't hear from the school at all?! Anyways good luck to all and hope the wait and hardwork pays off!

It would be great if we could go over skype "etiquette"
Thanks

Aanchal and Versatile - I spoke with someone in the HKUST Admissions team. The good news is that we’ll come to know about the decision today - late evening I guess. Hope this helps. Best of luck! Cheers!
