I know it was my fault for procrastinating...but my damn computer
I had everything ready to send for my Duke early decision application at about 11 pm of 11/1- i know its late and I will take fault for that
so i sent it and it came up with something like you filled in the name for parent 1 so you have to complete the grad school information for parent 1
i was dumbfounded because i clearly filled in everything
it took me a good 20 minutes to figure out the problem- a conflict with my mom's college in China
so i fixed it and when i was going through just to check everything one more time...blank
my computer froze
i waited a few minutes to see if it would unfreeze, but it didn't and even when i tried to press the shut down button, it didn't work.
i was forced to take out my battery..and here comes the real problems
i restarted and after what seemed like hours my computer loaded and i had five minutes left.
In the end, i was able to send my application late, like 12:10 pm
Will Duke notice that I am late- and would they really mind
aren't they still accepting apps from the West Coast (because of the time change)
Duke is not open now, but should i call them on Monday and tell them my situation or should i just hope that they don't care
