It has been a few weeks since I submitted my application and the application cycle closed and I haven't heard anything yet. I know it hasn't been that long but should I call to ask my status? Would this make it look like I really want it and put me on their radar? Or would it be seen as pestering them?

Lol, everyone is on the same boat mate. :)

If you call them, it won't cause any issue nor help you show your interests.

You will get the response, "Thank you for calling us. You will hear from us on or before the deadline date."

So, no worth. :P

Hi gmat_george,

You could definitely drop an email to the AdCom. Yes, calling is alright as well :) It will not be perceived negatively :)

All the best!

You could probably just call somewhat anonymously- and ask when people should expect to hear- but really it won't change anything in the process. Be careful not to call so often that you get on the "radar" for being pesty.... as this process of sorting through applications takes time! There may even be info on the website about when to expect a response! I suggest you use this waiting time to work on R2 applications so you are ready if you need to be....if you want help with R2 applications- reach out to us for a free consult at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
