I would contact the school. Sometimes, the lag time between submission and collection is two different times. Contact the school to check their policy even if it was late. Usually, they will at least consider your application even if it was late. Good luck!
Rutgers admissions, sending application after the recommended deadline?
Okay.. so the recommended deadline for applications to Rutgers was Dec. 1. If I send in an application now with no essay, do you think I have any chance of getting accepted?
Thanks in advance for you opinions/comments.
Thanks everyone.. on the website they say that after the deadline, it is based on what they still have available.. so obviously the chances of getting in are going to be less.. and for the essay, i believe it is optional.. but i'm not sure
im applyin 2 UT austin.my 2 required essays are finished but my optional essay is still left.if i apply with the required essays now will i b allowed 2 submit my optional essay later?and what will the last date of submission for all the credentials.the last date for application is jan15
Okay usually it works like this. The optional is just to help them get to know you better. You won't be able to submit the optional part later and usually, not all the time but usually, the deadline for all the credentials is on the same day as the deadline for the application. You're an international student so you need to send the financial forms from like now. Good Luck
If the essays are optional then you don't have to do it if you can not submit them by the deadline. The best idea is to ask the admissions office directly about this, they give great help in questions like these.
if you are a sure accepted students i.e. your results are in teh top 10% of the incoming class then optionals probably are not needed however otherwise, if you are in the middle pack or on the borderline and if you they are choosing someone with optional essays and someone without optional, they'll probably choose the optional one unless the essay was horrible usually optionals are not optional. Its your chance to show more about yourself and shows that you are more willing to go that extra yard to get that acceptance. i did all my optional essays
MOST colleges accept December scores. I cannot find an official statement from either Boston or Syracuse, but I am sure that the December test date is the LAST date they will allow scores to be sent. As long as you order the scores to be sent before January 1st or by January 1st, it doesn't matter if they arrive later than the deadline. I for one am sending my December ACT scores to my colleges. I am ordering them to be sent tomorrow, because the price is pretty hefty and I did not have the money to pay on the spot.
hahaha I would like to know too please if anyone knows. I would hope its Jan. 1st 11:59pm tho... Regardless, I advise you to send it in asap b/c commonapp won't even let you log in when everyone is logged on all at the same time. I've had too many scholarships that I couldn't applied to b/c the server crashed before I could submit my essays.
It means Jan. 1st @ 11:59, but EST! usually. So make sure you have the right time zone. I know that some schools permit you to submit by 11:59 according to your time zone, but b/c most schools are closed on break, it's best to submit by EST time.
It's still 9PM, but I cannot submit my common app?
I tried submitting through common app, but it says that it's late! The deadline is 1/1/10, but it's still 9:39 pm here! The time deadline is 11:59 pm right? What is going on? What do i do if I can't send in my application?!!!!!!! HELP!
