Become an Application Stalker
After you submit your application, you should receive a student ID from the schools to which you applied or an e-mail confirming your submission. Be sure to follow up and make sure that all of the pieces of your application have been received.
The most common things missing are:
- Letters of recommendation
- SAT/ACT scores
Unfortunately, things get lost or sometimes there is a glitch in the system, so just make sure that you are on top of everything. If there’s a problem with items 1 or 2, speak with your teachers or guidance counselor. Make sure that they have sent them out before calling the school.
Once you have the information, call the school if you know they have been sent out on time. If your “official test scores” have not been received, you will need to call the College Board for SATs or Educational Testing for the ACTs to see why they have not been sent.
