okay if one of my teachers chooses to do a paper submission as opposed to an online one, do still need to register him/her online?
what if i send her an invite, yet she doesnt accept (be/c she's "too old" for technology -_-) yet she still does the paper form and writes a letter for me..will that be acceptable?
also, how do i make sure that my paper files are correctly matched with my online submission? o_O
any help is appreciated

    I don't think you need to invite her. From what I understand once the college receives anything from you, a file is set up for you and they'll wait until everything is in, whether it be online or paper. Not sure about the second part, but I know some colleges give you a username and password so you can see when your app is complete.

    No, you don't

    Yes, that's fine
    also, how do i make sure that my paper files are correctly matched with my online submission?

    Generally, once colleges get something from you, they create a file for you and will match the stuff that you send later to that file with the rest of your app. In other words, the school should handle it
