Members don't see this ad.
I just confirmed that a couple of the schools I applied to never received my applications. I may have to send them again. I also just came across this article:

http://www.newsobserver.com/news/crime_safety/story/1301068.html

For those who haven't received confirmations after some time, please contact your schools to make sure they received your application. That is how I found out that my schools didn't. Fortunately, I still have some time left to send them. And for those waiting for interview invites/acceptance letters, please confirm with the schools that they were sent out!

Just a warning...

This worries me because I live in Raleigh and our mail man delivers priority mail and time dependent material to other people in our neighborhood. Good thing we all know each other and every few days you see people delivering the mail to the right person.

I WISH my mailman didn't deliver junkmail to me... although I guess that's a crime, but I think junkmail should be a crime in itself.


And apparently certified mail doesn't always get scanned, if the UCSF ordeal is any indication. Several of us sent certified, and the stuff got delivered, but the USPS site doesn't say it ever was. So sometimes certified mail might cause more worry than relief.

electronic submission ftw! can't believe some of these backward schools still require "paper." I applied for undergrad in 2001 and it was all electronic. Geesh.

Yes, I live near there, and I was the TA for the intro to statistics. One of the girls who needed help in the class claimed that she sent all of her application materials to UNC nursing school, only to find out that her application was thrown out because they did not receive things that she claimed she sent.

So she wanted to start in the Spring of 2009 but will now have to wait until the summer. In my apartment, I used to not receive mail, even bills, etc. I wonder if this guy had anything to do with that! Apex is very near here and is the town next to Cary.
