Echoing the sentiments of my colleagues below, I too am consumed with “reading season.” While we’re shut away in our offices pouring over letters of recommendation, transcripts and personal essays, we are also aware that you are anxious about your application and what’s happening to it. Over the past few weeks, a lot of you have been calling in to make sure that all of your materials have been received. We’ve heard your concerns, and with the help of our lovely friends in IT, we are happy to introduce a new online system that will allow you to view your application materials checklist online!
Before I get to those instructions, I want to briefly tell you what happens to your application in between the time you hit submit on your computer and we receive your folder on our desk. There are actually more steps involved than one would think and our clerical staff work hard to make sure that every piece of information that you submit is recorded in our records. Here’s a glimpse of what they do “behind the scenes”….
It’s quite a process. Why am I telling you all of this?
Because if you check the status of your materials online and see that we have not received an important piece of your application – do not panic. Do not call the office; we won’t have any more information than you have. IF a piece is not listed as received, it probably means that whatever you submitted is being processed. Please check again after a few days and hopefully it will appear.
It can take anywhere from 3 – 10 business days for this miraculous process to be complete (remember – hundreds of applications are processed every day). So, please be patient and we’ll do our best to keep things moving along.
And now…the Web site link!
To check the status of your application materials, please go to the following link:
You’ll be asked to either login or register. First time users, please register with our system, and put your login name and password in a safe place!
*Note – this Web site will not provide an update on your acceptance status. It is merely for application materials. All decisions made for those applying in our regular decision pool will be mailed out at the end of March.
Thank you and we look forward to reviewing your application!
Assistant Director of Admissions
