tswift, how do you know the committee hasn't met yet?
congrats, but im hoping to hear back from them soon! my app was submitted on the 5th, but technically not completed until the 10th. i hope that doesn't negatively affect my chances so much i dont get an interview!
Don't freak out about Hopkins! The email specifically said the admissions committee hadn't met yet. He just liked my application (probably SOP) and didn't want to wait to invite me. The majority of invites will come later. I guess it's the same deal with Yale, but I'm not one of the top applicants there lol.
@AliG89 Adcoms do check online information from time to time. They don't have time to do this for all applicants, but if there is a reason they want to see more information then Google is the go to place. It is a good idea to tighten your facebook privacy settings and loosen your LinkedIn privacy settings during application season. This means you can substitute professional profile info for social profile info in the search results. It gives you one more chance to provide evidence of your professional intent that supports the application.
So when I log into my submitted UPenn application it says "Application Status: Incomplete" and then lists everything below that as complete or received. Anyone else have this problem? I'm not sure if I should email the admissions coordinator because they kind of told us not to bother them ... I just don't want to miss my application being reviewed because of some computer error! Thoughts?
