m.leo Posted November 29, 2019 Share Posted November 29, 2019 (edited) Hello fellow scholars, It has been total chaos for the last couple of days, and apparently, it will last long until the next week. So the long story short, I applied to this graduate program at an ivy league school. Time frame as follows; 11/18 - application started; transcript ordered through credential solutions 11/19 - got a notice that transcript ordered, processed, and delivered to the school's admission department 11/20 - application completed; the transcript is shown as missing, not yet received. At this point, I didn't call the admission office as they specifically mentioned on the app portal by saying, "please don't contact them regarding the status of transcripts, whether they received or not since it is a manual not automated and takes up to 7 days to process transcripts." 11/27 - at 12:45 pm ten minutes before the long Thanksgiving break, I received the following email. "since there are only a few days before the deadline, the application will be marked incomplete if your transcripts, not received in the admissions office by the application deadline. If you don't think you'll be able to meet the deadline, you should withdraw your application." I called them around 1:10 pm but ended up voice mail that offices are closed until December 2nd. December 2nd is also the last day for the application deadline. 11/27 - I received an automated email saying, "admission office will not accept any application material after December 2nd. If you need immediate assistance for the application related questions, you may contact our office directly after December 1st; however, since we are currently busy, it may take up to three business days to address your problem." So basically, it says if you need assistance, yea contact to us on December 2nd but don't expect any response cause we gonna respond in three days. When you received an answer, you will already miss the deadline anyway. 11/27 - I also sent emails to anyone and everyone and explain the situation. I checked with the "credential solution," and confirmed transcript is delivered. 11/28 - I received another automated email saying that " your application is incomplete. This is because, in most cases, students' transcripts have either not been received or, more likely, received but have not been checked in by admissions office staff. Please, at this point, do not contact us as it takes up to 7 days to check and process the transcript. " If they received everything before the deadline, why I am the one to be punished because they don't process the documents they received in timely manner. Any advice, guys, as I am about losing my mind ??? Is it over ??? Thanks for reading, Edited November 29, 2019 by m.leo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
