Helo: try to look at it from the colleges' perspective: they feel they need certain documents to fairly evaluate each applicant. One applicant fails to submit a required item. After repeated unheeded requests for the item, what is the college to do? Admit him anyway? Over those equally qualified who have submitted each requirement?
I too, would be disturbed at colleges who were cold and would auto-reject kids for minor slippages -- but if the repeatedly request missing documents and are rebuffed, WHAT ARE THEY TO DO?
It's one thing to say it can be a confusing and nerve-wracking process -- granted. You have my full sympathies. But to expect special treatment?
" How could you deny a high school student if they don't send you everything? "
That's why colleges publish explicit checklists of items along with submission deadlines. And these items aren't frivolous. They don't ask applicants to jump hurdles out of spite. Everything required is required.
Your logic is extremely curious in this circumstance, helo. Step back and read what you've written.
See what happens if you "forget" to pay your mortgage or rent for a few months.
