    @whenderson272 I think that you can still turn it in, because my list wasn't generated until a week after the deadline. But to make sure, you can email the financial aid office and ask them.

    I was accepted! Does anyone know when they send out the official acceptance letters in the mail?

    Congrats to everyone who got accepted, and to those who didn't, don't let this one college get you down.
