Are grad schools typically on time with acceptance or rejection notification?
DD has applied to grad school at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.
She submitted her application months ago (December I think). First they told her they would have decisions by March 1, that came and went and she heard nothing. After emailing them multiple times they told her she was deferred to a second round of admissions and would hear by May 1.
Well, May 1 has come and gone and she heard nothing. After contacting them several times, they finally told her they "would know her application status today", but who knows if they will follow through.
Is this normal behavior for a grad school?
She feels like they are stringing her along for some reason (maybe waiting to see how many Canadians get into the program?) and can't get an answer out of them, and is aggravated to the point where she isn't sure she even wants to go there any more.
Comments or advice?
