If you haven’t got any graduate school admission and if your online application status still says “under process” or “under review” .
I know how it will feel, when your friends are preparing for Visa interview. But, you have come to the right place. Following are the different possible ways to find the college admission application status

Online Application Status
Not majority of the schools update the online application status regularly. Department could have give admission, but graduate school will take time to update the status online. If you are running out of time go to next step.
Email to Graduate School
This sometime work, if the person responsible to reply to email sent to graduate school is keeping up with all emails received. Graduate School will receive lots of email. So, this might help you, if not go to next step.
Email to Department
I have written about contacting professors during college graduate school admission process. If any of the professors have replied to you, then its good to email them again, asking for admission status. If that particular professors like you, he should get the admission status pretty soon.
If not professors, find the administrative assistant email id for the department and send them email asking for graduate school admission status. If that doesn’t help, then next step is the fastest way to find the graduate school admission status.
Phone call to Graduate School
Call the Graduate School during working hours. Have your graduate school application number or student id which should be assigned to you after application is submitted with you when calling graduate school. If you don’t have student id, then they will ask to verify your last name, birth date, address. They should tell your admission status. This is the fastest and most effective way to find the admission status.
Status through your friends
If you have friends studying in university you have applied, you can give me permission to find the status on your behalf. They can walk in person to graduate school and find the status for you. Also, if you running out of time, Graduate School can give the I-20 to your friend and they can send it through fast courier service. Since, graduate school will send it via normal mail and it will take 2-3 weeks to reach India.
