Application error what should I do

Postby rribley » Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:37 pm

Hi guys,

Applied to BC and it's a bit of stretch for me, but not out of this world. Anyway, I submitted my applications at the end of December but for some reason I never assigned my LORs to my BC application :-0. Obviously I am an idiot, but besides that how should I proceed?

I have already attached the LORs and confirmed that BC received them. Actually, the reason I noticed is because I needed to inform all the schools I applied to that I am living abroad for the semester and am unreachable at outdated contact info. BC emailed me back saying that they would update my information, but with no mention of my incomplete status. Just decided to double check I emailed every school using my LSAC list and noticed the error. But now, instead of just saying my application has been received, my BC status checker states that my application is complete. Yay! BUT it's like, February! No! Also the status never said incomplete and also there was a red check next to "CAS Report Received" on the requirements list.

I know it's my error, but BC never sent me anything like hey we never got this or your application is incomplete. Maybe they don't have to. Does the fact that they never notified me mean they hadn't even gotten to my app yet? How big of a screw up is this? Huge? Medium? Nada?

Thoughts and speculation appreciated. Continued abuse regarding my stupidity is unnecessary I'm already doing a great job thx.

Tough to say, but I bet it didn't ding you too terribly much. BC's website says they accept applications until April 30th, so it isn't like you went complete outside of their cycle (though they do rolling admissions). How the lateness affects your consideration for $$$? Other than "it certainly doesn't help," I'm not sure anyone can give you a concrete answer.

I would bet they didn't review your app since you got no notification and weren't "complete."

Oh well, it's happened now. Try not to stress too hard, and best of luck!
