    Hi Guys,

    I just realized I made the extremely boneheaded mistake
    of misreading Columbia's deadline as midnight tonight, not
    midnight LAST night... When I tried to access my application
    it was not available and the note said deadline passed.
    Of course I am a complete idiot since I was basically done
    a week ago, but wanted to proofread my essay ... man
    now I can't even turn the application in.:eek:

    So what to do now? Should I just call the admissions office
    tomorrow and beg for a chance to submit? Does this even
    work? let me know what you think

    Yea they did till Sunday Oct 27 at midnight.
    But I just realized that technically sunday
    midnight means between sat and sun
    and not sun and mon like I had thought...

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Are you serious?!? Oh my God! I was just about to finish mine! Oh crap....

    ::that really sucks::

    edit: 6:34pm

    Okay, now that I've calmed down..there are a LOT of people on the Columbia med message board talking about this as well, so I hopefully they'll be really nice about helping us out. I'm going to finish it up in Word anyway and cross my fingers! :)

    I suggest you call Columbia.

    The lady (I forgot her name? Leanne? margaret?) haha
    she is a sweetheart. Explain what happend and she will most likely let you turn it in or reaccess your application.

    But yeah, they are a bunch of really nice people.
    :clap:

    That was kinda boneheaded of them to make the deadline at midnight especially on the night the time changed. Miami used to have our preferred registration deadline at 12midnight but they had so many problems with this exact thing that they changed it to 11:59PM. I have to admit that I probably would have flubbed it up too. I bet they'll make an exception. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks guys...I'll call up the admissions office tomorrow and ask them. It sounds like since so many people are in this boat we should all be okay.

    It's here: http://t1.berlinprod.com/accounts/columbia/columbiasite8/bbs.htm

    I would recommend firing off an email to them tonight too, so they can see you were trying to do it. At least, that's what my roommates thought. Good luck everyone!
