Thanks for that. Now I'm not so worried about the remote possibility that it's lost in the mail.
Also, it just had to be POSTMARKED by the 15th, correct? In which case--if you sent it out last week--I'm sure that it is--so it should be fine, no matter how long it takes to get there.
Um..the point was that if it's lost in the mail, then it wouldn't be RECEIVED, and so it wouldn't matter when it was postmarked. That's why you should send shit like this certified, which I failed to do. Bah.
i got your point...but it likely wouldn't be lost FOREVER (that does not happen all that often)...simply delayed (which happens all the time)...so even if it takes three weeks...it was postmarked, so you would be fine.
Just call again tomorrow--and if they say they can't tell you now--push it a little...they'll cave...they are usually pretty accomodating.
FWIW: I sent mine on a thursday afternoon 1.5 weeks ago--they had not processed it until the next Wednesday, when they verified by phone, I didn't get the email until that Thursday morning.
