I sent this one today, RD.

Anyway, below my addresses, there is a dropdown box for "Country". I couldn't find United States or even USA (and I'm sure they are there now) in the boxes. Above it says under the "State" part that this is only for US states or Canadian provinces, so I figured they just didn't include country in the menu. So my dumb ass submits the apps without anything in the "Country" spot. Now, after submitting, I realize that this is completely nonsensical. I worked hard on this app, especially the five-year plan essay, and would hate to get dinged because of a stupid error like this.

My question is, will I be screwed for not having "USA" under my addresses, both of which are clearly designated as in a U.S. State? Should I e-mail them and tell them that my addresses are in the US? Should I just chill out?

This. I remember having a similar problem. If you put a state, they'll know you're in the U.S.

Whether or not it is in someone's hands or just on his/her desk I cannot say, but my status still says "complete" so you are certainly a step ahead of complete and a step ahead of me.

My Upenn status has a check on "Early Decision (if applicable)" even though I am not ED. Wonder if this is a mistake or it's normal since the field said "if applicable". Does this happen to anyone?

First time sent out was like 2-3 weeks ago, second time was last Thursday. -_- I have no idea if LSAC received it or not. I asked my prof to kindly fax it if she gets a chance, but I think she's getting annoyed.

Okay, this is probably an unnecessary concern, but...

In the status checker requirements section, did anyone else's "Early Decision (if applicable)" status change? Mine had previously been an empty yellow box, and was just replaced by a check mark.

I did not apply nor do I have any interest in applying ED to Penn. Do other non-ED's have this checked off also now?

Thanks.

And they unchecked the ED box.
