Will asking for status updates hurt my chances?

Postby luke8ball » Sun Mar 24, 2013 11:58 am

I applied 2 months ago to a Master's program at NCSU. I emailed the graduate director 2 weeks ago asking for a status update. He said they have been very "tardy" about MS applicants, and that I should know soon.

Alas, I still haven't heard back. Is it ok to email back asking again, or will this hinder my chances? After all, I'm confident he's part of the committee reviewing applications. I'm just annoyed because this acceptance/rejection is the only one I haven't gotten, and I'm ready to be in a position to make a decision.

I don't believe so. This is how I found out I was accepted at one of my schools (that I'm planning on attending :)) As long as you don't ask them every week, as that would be annoying. :P
