I turned in app 3 minutes late

I turned in my common app for amherst, stanford, and pomona at 11:58 PM on January 1st (I know, risky and STUPID - loooong story), but the common app registered it as January 2nd, so they must have been operating on eastern time or my computer clock was a bit wrong. Do you think amherst (or stanford/pomona) will still get/review my application?? Thanks!

    Nope.. your life, as you thought it might be, is over.

    (jk) I'd be pretty surprised if it wasn't perfectly fine as I am sure you are far from the only one.

    No problem: I turned in my Harvard application ten minutes late!

    Guess how that turned out =P

    jk. Of course they'll receive and review your application.

    I would still email the office of admissions about your situation.

    Don't email. You'll look petty and fretful. It's FINE.

    I agree with Semper. There's still tons of time before they look at the apps. Emailing them is going way too far. It's not a problem at all. I missed the financial aid deadline by a week for ED (didn't really read that whole part) and that was still fine.

    Don't email them, and don't worry about it. You're fine
