Hi all, thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I recently applied to University of Puerto Rico. The deadline was April 15th 2015 for a August 2015 start. I have confirmed with the admissions official that they received all of my application materials. This official told me they received 40 applications and accept 12 students.

How long would you expect it to take to hear back about whether I am granted an interview? I am anxious to hear for obvious reasons, but also for the fact that it will be a huge move and it makes it hard to plan. It is almost May, and for an August start my husband and I would probably move down mid-July. That puts us at 2.5 months already which doesn't leave a whole lot of time for planning.

What is your experience with wait times when applying?

Would it be annoying of me to email the program director to ask him?

Thank you!
