I am. Transcripts too. I've sent at least two of each in multiple forms and they say they haven't received mine either. At first I chalked it up to the fact that I sent them to them before I actually got my application in, but now I'm not sure what happened to them.

FedEx assures me they actually delivered them. So, it is either a backlog, or they just don't update that status checker all that often.


Thanks for the response. I got an email a while back that said the status checker is not updating transcripts and certs appropriately. I think it must be just a backlog. I have email receipts that show they've gotten it, but there must be 800+ of these things flooding in.

Absolutely.

That does make sense and it's really good to know. It very likely does not help the backlog if people - like myself - ended up sending multiple copies either. Ha ha ha. At any rate, I'm sure they'll parse through it and we will be all right.

Did the status checker update or did they email you?

Checking in to say I also went complete yesterday. I received an email somewhere between 7:00 and 7:30 ET.

Question for those of you that went complete yesterday or are still waiting: Did you also get a ton of emails reminding you to turn in different components of the application? I feel like it got a little crazy for a while. I mean, I'm not complaining or anything - mostly curious. In my deluded mind, I felt great just to chat with someone at CLS everyday for a week.

I was admitted a couple days after going complete, so don't think that you'll have to wait long until you hear something. You might hear by tomorrow COB

Fingers crossed. I just don't want to deal with extending deadlines at other schools, haha.

Mine is still listed as "Incomplete," and I never got anything beyond the initial e-mail that stated that they got the first few components of my application. I think that was on 27/06.

I sent them an e-mail yesterday evening to ask if they would be able to tell me what they needed, so I hope that will yield some insight.

yes sorry! my application went complete on 7/11 at 9:30am (except it still says that i dont have my transcript or my dean's certificate in) and they admitted me via email on 7/14 at 1:30pm

I was in the top 5% at a T14 school (at the lower end) if that helps! I can tell you my specific stats over a private message if you prefer that!

Congratulations!

I take it they sent you an e-mail to let you know that you went complete, then?

Mine completed on July 6th so I guess this means I am on some kind of waitlist

Okay, my application finally went complete after I sent my question about what I was missing. That is a relief. Ha ha ha.
