How Do I Check my College Application Status?
After submitting your application to each college you should have gotten an email from them. Those email are very often your log-in to check the status of your application.
If you have not created the log-in please do so now. Write your log-in info on your Student Profile found on your google drive. There is a tab on the sheet named "College Dashboard Log-Ins"
If you did not get an email please call the admission office asking them, "Hi my name is (Insert Your Name Here) and I am calling to check in on the status of my application"
Please keep me informed if there is anything missing. By now everything should be in, only documents I have seen missing for most of you are any financial documents and/or SAT scores. Please CONTACT ME ASAP if anything is missing.
