Seniors: Following Up with the CollegesPosted on Wed, 01/30/2013 - 09:29
Follow up with each college to which you have applied to make sure all forms and documents have been received. Many colleges have status pages available online. If you can’t check online, send an email or place a phone call to the admission office. Respect that the admission office is busy at this time; don’t call every day. In most cases, the school will inform you if your file is incomplete. But it's your responsibility to confirm all application materials have been received.
For more information on your applications including a checklist, see Chapter 14, "The Application Form," in College Admission: From Application to Acceptance, Step by Step.
