Q:  I didn’t receive an e-mail for an interview.  Should I assume that I didn’t get into the program?
A:  When we emailed some applicants, the email was returned to us because of an invalid email address.  Some applicants did not list an email.  Those applicants will be contacted via phone by Friday, April 19, 2019.  Final admissions decisions will not be made until May 6, 2019.  All applicants will be informed of their status on or after that date.  Some candidates may be placed on a waitlist.
