OK - I submitted/certified August 24th and recieved an email about a week later saying my payment went through, blah, blah, they will let me know when my application is verified, blah, etc.. Now, just today I got THE SAME EMAIL. At first I thought "you're kidding me, they just received my application NOW???" but then I realized that I have recieved two secondaries, and letter from schools saying they got my name and address and know that I am applying - so some information was transmitted. I went to the application itself and saw... red Xs!!! Three of them, I think, transcripts, course work and something else. My question is, should I expect to see all red Xs before I am verified? (I know... I am not worthy to go ahead of those who submitted in July - I can only imagine your frustration - ever think about skeet shooting?) Could it be that they sent me the wrong email? I could spend an hour on hold waiting to speak to a specialist about this, but I figured someone out here likely has been through the same thing. Thanks for any info!
