    OK this is a little embarassing and irresponsible of me. When I received my U Vermont interview invite, I remember there being a postcard to send back to let them know that I will attend on the assigned date. I can't find that postcard anywhere now! I have already called to confirm the date after unsuccesfully trying to change it.

    The postcard said it would be included in my file. So what should I do? Write a letter or an email syaing I will attend? Should I mention I misplaced the little postcard?

    Ayudame, por favor.

    I would call them and saying you're just making sure they don't need the actual postcard since you had already confirmed your interview over the phone. With luck, they will say all is good.

    If they say, "what the heck, we love processing pointless paperwork, please send it in anyway," you give an embarrassed little cough and say that unfortunately the little postcard must have slipped out of your file, but that you would be most happy to mail them a letter if they require confirmation in writing. :)

    I agree, don't stress over it if you've already talked to them and confirmed by phone. Just call or email them and ask whether they need the card since you've already confirmed. Postcards are ridiculous anyway!

    What happened to me was that my postcard got lost in the mail and they never told me it had been lost. So after not hearing from them, I called them and told them I'd sent it and it had never made it. They were fine with it. They didn't make a big deal about it and I was interviewed and was accepted. So don't stress about it.

    Thanks altaskier :)

    Is it customary for them to notify you after they receive that postcard? I'll call them next week to ask if they received it and reconfirm again. (I still haven't found it though) just a little fib <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I guess they are suppose to confirm with you once they've recieved your postcard. But, I never got that far, since they never got my postcard. The people at the admissions office are very nice. Just call and confirm your interview with them and it should be no problem. I doubt a postcard is going to keep you out of UVM.

    Good Luck

    Everyday I look for the postcard, because it makes me nervous that I could lose my interview date if they don't have it on file. I just cleaned my room and didn't find it. Then I picked up my TV's box (aka my foot rest under my desk) and I FOUND it!! wooo-hooooo! See? all that hard work DOES pay off in the end! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    Thanks for your advice everyone! Gotta go buy a stamp (they should have prestamped it IMO!)
