I am an applicant of Graduate program in Biological sciences of X University, USA. My application deadline was Dec 15, 2015 and I submitted application with required documents on time (PhD application). For the past 4 months my application status in portal shows "In review". In the university website,no specific decision timeline is given. My question is can I contact through e-mail to graduate program coordinator to know the decision status? It is almost April 1st week, I fear my application might be rejected, but I want to know it from officials.
Is it normal to ask Graduate program coordinator to ask about decision timeline or my application status?
