No News is Not Bad News

We Admit It!  Our little application engine that could is still chugging and chugging up that proverbial hill.  While we are making good progress, it’s a slow and steady race (okay, we’ve now probably used more than enough children’s story metaphors).  Suffice it to say there are still thousands of submitted applications that have yet to make it to our servers.  There are even more that have made it to our server but are not yet complete.

Without going into too much detail, just know that once you click submit, your application will make its way through several steps before actually being downloaded into our application database.  The application engine is a complicated one, but it works.  Once it does get to our server, it will go through numerous additional steps after that to be matched with your other application materials.

Suffice it to say if you still haven’t heard anything from us since submitting your application, there’s no need to panic.  That’s incredibly normal, and there are thousands of other applicants in that boat along with you.  Once we are at the point where we believe we’ve downloaded every submitted application, we will post that information.  It’s only at that point that you should be concerned if you haven’t heard from us.

We receive and complete hundreds of files every day and send out corresponding emails to that extent to applicants and their parents.  Just keep an eye on your inbox.

Again, thank you for your patience.
