Calling admission's office to confirm receipt of my LOCI?

Postby noname086 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 1:19 pm

Is it ok to call admission to see if they received your LOCI? Or should I wait for them to contact me to tell me they received it?

Wait a week or so. If you get no response a polite check in would be fine.

I think calling would be fine.

from my experience, and i've sent like 4 or 5 LOCIs this month, i doubt they are going to let you know that they received it, given they are probably the most busiest at this time of the year. one of the posters above mentioned a week, i wouldnt even wait that long. it depends when you sent it and how you sent it.

via mail - should take no more than 3-4 days, call on day 4 or day 5
via email - should be immediate, call on day 3 or day 4

either way, i would call to 1) see if they received it, and 2) make sure it is going to be considered along with your original app. - i cant stress the importance of (2), as i would imagine most people assume/forget this.

HTH!
