I already submitted my LORs and online work... but have not sent in my handwritten essay or check. is it too late?? should i still send in my app?? ack! any thoughts and suggestions as to what to do will be really appreciated. thanx!

    Good luck monkichi!

    I posted a question similar to this a week or so ago and got no response from anybody...i thought i was the only SDN SLACKER!!!:laugh:
    any way, the deadline for one of my secondaries was passed by one day, and i ended up FED EXing (overnight) the essays, info sheet, check, ect to the school ( the clerk looked at me funny when i asked if they could put a tire track on it :)). it was to an out of state public school that seems to hate out-of-staters, but i was pleasantly surprised this weekend with an interview invitation!:D (only 5-10 % get invited and my stats are not spectacular)...SO...it didn't hurt me much, but i guess every school is different. so try and see what happens, maybe you'll be surprised!

    unfortunately, i have experience with a "PO Box" too...(yes, i had to send another one off last minute too...i promise i won't always be a slacker!!!)
    the USPS will ship over night-i went to a mail boxes Ect- but it is a few bucks more like anywhere from 13 to 23 bucks, but will be there by 10:30 AM, even to a PO box! i haven't heard from that school ,but that was only this tuesday (technically, i had like 2 days to get it there, i just wanted to make sure it did):laugh: anyways, best of luck to a fellow slacker!:)
