Application Status


Recommended Posts

I'm curious, for some of you, do your application statuses change? A few of mine say that my app is "being reviewed" while some only say that my app has been "submitted" or "completed" or "ready for review." I submitted my apps the day before or on the day of the deadline, and I'm not sure if because I submitted them "late" that they won't even be considered.

I think it varies about the website.  I have heard people saying theirs have changed, but none of mine have.  And one says completed and a POI emailed me saying they were reading my application materials and another one said incomplete for two weeks after I submitted the application and then just changed to complete.  Depends on the software they use.

 

And a day before is a day before and the day of is good, too.  I think a significant amount of people submit around then.  You should be fine.

The only acceptance I have right now doesn't do online status updates. However, I can say with the exception of apps due January 15 ALL my apps were submitted right before/at the deadline. I don't think they can realistically expect submissions super early for applicants currently in school, especially MA students teaching.

For what it's worth, I had all of my apps submitted very early (a few of them on the first day applications opened), and the statuses of many of them are still the same as you mention -- some say "submitted," some say "under departmental review" etc.

Thanks for sharing. So many things about this process freaks me out because of what is at stake. I'm also glad that I'm not the only one submitting apps the day before or the day of.
