why is it so hard for ad office to send a decision?

literally, educate me, internet, please. The continuous delay is driving me crazy.

To this school Fordham that I applied for fall 2020, after their interview they responded me with a 'it was greet to meet you, i hope you learned how our school would help you to achieve your career goal' email. Then I waited 2 weeks with no further notice, so I email to a staff and asked her nicely if it would be possible to receive a decision before the end of this month. and then she wrote back 'you are scheduled to receive at 05/29/2020' which is today, now is 7:05pm and I see nothing!

I even emailed the office again at 4:50pm sth to ask again and no one has replied, of course! It's Friday! Who doesn't want to get off work early on Friday! Do they really care? Why?

I will have to assume they reject me silently if I dont see anything next Monday, because the other school's class registration is about to start, and I wont be able to wait any longer.

One of the horrible story I found online to other applicant to this same Fordham school is that a person had been told initially will receive a decision in the following 2-3 weeks, then nothing came up, so the person emailed to follow up and was told to keep waiting, so after another 2-3 weeks, the person found s/he got into waitlist, then another 2 months, a rejection letter came through as a final decision.....how ridiculous that was?!

I might be the same scenario for me. but anyway, anyone has any clue why is it so hard for school to send out decision? just accept or reject or waitlist, is just a category! why is that hard to send out!?

    This post is a little confusing. When did you actually apply? Fordham RD decisions came out a couple of months back, it should just be waitlist now? (I would have assumed you were on the waitlist but your last paragraph implies otherwise.)

    Are you a freshman or a transfer applicant? And why did you need to interview, that's not usual for Fordham?
