Howard has sent me a letter explaining that I'm missing some prereqs. I was surprised and went to their prereq page to check for the 20th time. I had all of the prereqs they said I was missing. Is this just a clerical error or what's going on?":confused::eek::confused::eek:

Same thing happened to me two times with Howard. I would contact them asap to clear it up. Good luck!

Were the courses needed for Howard pre-reqs check-marked (within the brackets '[]') in the letter? Or just listed?

The courses were check-marked within the brackets and the courses were circled as well. In addition, a pre-req that I do need to complete before admission was not listed.

To OP, as mentioned before, contact the admission officer in the letter ASAP.

Just to let you know, those people who will answer the phone when you call Howard are not the best people to deal with. They get pissed to recieve a phone call, so be prepared for anything. :confused:

I've called numerous times, but it's either an answering machine or the lady Keri tells me she'll call me back and she never does. I've sent emails instead and just waiting on a response.

Did you try calling the phone number on the bottom of the letter they sent you? (this might be a dumb question) However, today I called the number on the bottom of the letter, they put me right through and I believe I spoke directly to Marlon Prince, he was VERY nice, fixed the problem immediately, informally told me I'd be called for an interview, and called me back about 15 minutes later to officially invite me for an interview. That was at about 11:30 this morning, maybe you want to try to call at that time a day? You may get a better response. Just a suggestion.

Thanks! I submitted the app in september, but I took both the August and October PCATs, so maybe they were waiting on the October scores or something like that. My interview is on January 15th, I kind of wish it was sooner, but hey, I'll take it!

oh wow I was under the impression that the supplement was due on the day of the interview, and we brought it with us along with the fee and the supporting documents. I guess I'm going to have to call and ask. So no I haven't submitted it yet, but thanks for the heads up!
