I received an Early Decision offer from Conn this year and told me to send all the confirmation documents by 30th December. I sent all of these documents by e-mail (scanned copy) and via FedEx (hard copies) on 26th December, 2009. But as holidays were on in USA, my FedEx courier reached on 4th January, 2009 instead of 29th December, 2010. The package reached there on time but as no one was there in the college to sign and acknowledge the package, there was a delivery exception and the college requested the package to come on 4th Jan, 2010. I checked the status with my tracking number and they received it yesterday.
When I sent my e-mail also on 26th December 2009, an automatic out of office reply was sent in stating that the person wont be available until 4th January 2010.
Now my question is, will this hurt my enrollment in any way, particularly that I'm an international? Will they throw me out for this reason? Or will they see that I sent the materials on 26th December, 2009 and acknowledge it? I still haven't received a confirmation for the e-mail or FedEx package.
