Has anyone that hasn't heard back emailed them to ask the status? I will likely send a email to Christopher tomorrow since the next cycle is almost opening 

I also emailed him last week and haven’t heard anything. Hopefully we’ll hear back soon.

To those waiting to hear back, I have some information for you.  In the most recent email from Chris Dennett he says, "We needed to make some adjustments, and have decided as a department to increase your class size from 80 to 100! We are still pending a few seat offers and decisions at this time. Instead of waiting for a complete roster, I have decided to send you all your Welcome Packets".  This was sent a few days ago. The due dates for many of the forms in the welcome packet are March 29th. Hope this helps!

I suppose that email was only sent to accepted students right?

I interviewed in November but haven't heard any news back yet. Unfortunately my apartment lease is almost up and I will have to put in a more pricy short term lease just in case I do get accepted. Does anyone know the orientation date? I need to know ASAP so I can do my apt renewal, thank you so much in advance!!

You should probably call tomorrow and ask if there is a certain date where they will notify everyone about their application status.  I interviewed back in October and have not heard back either.  Someone who interviewed with me got an email like 3 days ago saying that they were waitlisted.  Im not sure in what order they are reviewing application but when I was invited for the interview I did not get a email. They called me 2-3 days before the interview and asked if i wanted it.  I've interviewed at 6 schools this year and this is the only school I haven't heard back from. I was waitlisted to all other schools and they notified me within 1 week to 1 month after my interview.

For those who have yet to hear back, if you check your UTRGV graduate application self-service center, does your application summary read Under requirements “Criminal background check not received”?

I think that is only complete for accepted students.  I interviewed at 6 schools this cycle and they all require criminal backgrounds if you are accepted. I'm sure if that was something required they would have sent an email saying the application is incomplete.  I called last Friday and they said that they make decisions up until the semester starts.

Out of curiosity, what number did you call/around what time, if you don’t mind me asking?

Its been impossible for me to get a hold of them.

Still haven’t heard anything. I emailed and got a vague response. I think they already offered all of their admissions, so I’m just wondering if they’re ever gonna tell me anything at all or just leave me hanging. Just trying to plan appropriately. Anybody received a waitlist recently or anything?

The cycle opens again in about 2 weeks.  Im just gonna re apply. Stay positive. Consistency will get us in. I know it's tough,  but don't give up. It will be my 3rd time applying.  I didn't get any interviews my first time applying and this cycle I got 6.

How many students admitting seats have this program for this year? I heard it has 120 and all filled up. Is it right?

Wait, so is the program completely filled up for 2019? I thought they said at the interview that they would let us know either way?

That’s what I thought. They make it hard to plan/reapply when they wait until the next application cycle to tell you anything.
