    I've been emailing, calling CCP about the status of my supplemental application and now they tell me that they haven't received my supplemental application. In order for it to be completed, I'd have to have it in by 4:30PM today!!! Does it take 2 weeks for the mail to get from Ohio to Chicago??? Arghhhh!!!!!! Unless I have my own jet, I'm not gonna be able to get from here to there in less than 2 hours. :mad::mad::mad:

    Sorry...I just need to vent

    Sorry to hear that.... that sucks. But, maybe they'll get it today before 4:30. Stranger things have happened.

    I doubt it. If it hasn't shown up in the last 10 days. Why now? I'm just so frustrated and wish I had done it sooner. :(:(:(

    Congrats on your acceptance huhuhuhuuhuhuh

    Did they tell you they haven't entered it yet or that they don't literally physically have it in some huge pile of mail?

    That really sucks. Hopefully it will come up as they are going through stuff. Almost every school I applied to had the problem of not having something till I emailed or called to complain then it magically appeared.

    I've been calling and emailing them. I should have just overnighted another one. I just thought that it would be in their office since they're receiving so many in the last week. Oh well...there is nothing I can do now :(

    Well, my friend just drove over there to drop off his supplemental like 2 hours ago. He said that there's several of those US mail crates of applications all waiting to be opened and sorted into files. So when you called to check on your application it was probably still sitting unopened in one of those crates. Well, I hope this information gives you some hope that your application made it there in time given the fact you mailed a while ago.

    This is the email I got today:

    We have checked your records and our pending files and have been unable
    to locate your supplemental application. In order to complete and
    review your application the supplemental has to be in the admissions
    office by 4:30 pm today.

    Sincerely,

    Office of Admissions


    They already checked the pending files. At least I hope they did and not just glanced at it and decided to write me back and tell me that they can't find it. It sounds like a generic email. They didn't even answer my questions. I don't even know who wrote me that email.

    don't give up hope. If they received several hundred applications in the mail over the last week I highly doubt they took the time out of their busy rush to look at every envelope that is in the mail bins. Don't get too depressed for it probably is sitting there. Remember it is spring break time and staff take the time off themselves so the rest of the short staffed are overworked.

    thanks frank :) you always know what to say, but they specifically told me that they looked and didn't find it. Now there is nothing I can do but to wait. I'm just glad that at least I got in somewhere or else I'd be in a worse state of mind.

    One day we will probably look back and laugh at this. But for now, it's not too funny :p

    Yup, don't ever trust the post office. I learned from experience, if it is something important spend the extra couple of dollars for express or at least get a tracking number.

    Even if you send it certified it isn't guarenteed to arrive. my friend sent a gift certified and it never arrived, the post office told him that even so they don't guarentee it even if it is certified.

    if any of that makes sense. What a load of BS really.

    I don't think they would accept it if I faxed it over. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Now all I can do is wait to see if anyone is going to cash my check. If they cash my check, they'd better consider me or else send me back my $50..lol..

    My friend told me that he has a feeling I will end up going to Chicago, and I told him that his "premonitions" are never right..so don't even try..lol..

    So they received it on time or it got there on 3/2? I think that admissions offices tend to play it safe when they respond to people... for example early this week I was told by Midwestern that the Admissions committee had not met yet for the Feb candidates and I would find out within the next couple of weeks. Two days later I got accepted.
