December 15 is the priority deadline for University of Kansas Fall 2020 admission session for MS/PhD program. I have completed and submitted the application just today and now I have noticed that I have mistakenly missed a page of transcript when I scanned it. What should I do? It's Saturday and 15th Dec is Sunday. If I contact graduate adviser and explain my situation, would I be able to send the missing page? Do they consider mistakes like this? Please, help! N.B. I have exchanged emails with a professor before applying.
I am stressing over everything right now. Do programs generally contact you if you have missing documents such as LORs, test scores? Or is it all on the online portal so as long as there are no outstanding items then you are good?
So, I thought I'd share my situation as a lesson for any future applicants. Last week, I received an email from one of my schools to let me know they were missing my 3rd LoR and my GRE scores. This was a courtesy email, since the app isn't officially due until January, but it caused a bit of panic in me. Why? Because I sent all my GRE scores on October 4th and it's now December. Ultimately, this took a lot of back and forth with both the school and ETS until ETS told me they needed the school to contact them before they would resend the scores. I have yet to hear back from the school since sharing this with them. This also got me worried about my other programs. I sent the scores so early because one of my apps had an internal early deadline to be considered for early funding. I checked all of my apps and two others did not list GRE scores at all. This means there is no way for me to know, from my application status page, if they were received. So, I contacted one of the schools. They let me know this morning that the scores were not received. I let them know what ETS said and emphasized that the scores were sent 2 months ago. They promised to double-check and then follow up with ETS. So, I contacted the final school and am still waiting to hear if the scores are missing there. And yes, that school is the one that had the early deadline, so if they're missing, there's (likely) no chance for that additional funding. In short, always double-check and follow up if you don't see your scores posted to your app within a week or two (or haven't received a confirmation from the school). If the school can't find them, ETS will not send them again until the school contacts them directly. Also in short, I'm very stressed right now. I'll try and let you all know how this works out.
