I have an ask the Dean question, since you may be in the answering mood. For a variety of reasons, it made sense to apply to some colleges using their paper/Common App during the last week in December. These were colleges not previously discussed with the GC (GCs were out, of course, the last week and no one responded to email). Thus, it is necessary to get these on the list and get the paperwork (transcripts, recs, etc.) sorted out for mailing to the colleges this week and next. I am assuming and hoping that the massive to-the-ceilings stack of mail at colleges at this point will make the colleges generally indifferent that the follow-up school stuff is arriving 2 - 4 weeks after their application deadlines (all of which were met). Am I wrong about that indifference?
