Happy November 1, Early Action applicants! Today is the day that, if you haven’t yet done so, you must click the “Submit” button on your EA app (or take it to the post office for postmarking). I am pleased to see that as of last night, more than half of the applicants have already submitted both their Part 1 and their Part 2. Thank you for not procrastinating!
A few answers to common questions:
Please remember that if anything important happens after the deadline, you can always mail, email or call in any updates.
Don’t worry if your essay doesn’t format as you’d like it to. We’re reading for content, and we’re used to seeing the formatting errors from the computer uploading process. No worries.
Please give mailed materials (e.g. recommendations, etc.) time to show up on the tracking system. We are opening a lot of mail right now, and it takes substantial time to process all of these forms that come in right at the deadline.
We’ll post EA admissions decisions on an announced day in December. We have not yet announced that date; please keep it tuned to the blogs for more information.
…and, while you’re thinking of it, go thank your parents for their support over the years: they deserve it.
How did it feel to finally click the “Submit” button? For those of you who finished early, how are you spending your deadline night? And for those of you still finishing, how is it going?
