Is anything still 'Initiated' for you guys?

For me, FIVE THINGS! (making me panic!)

Counselor Rec
Emory Scholar student portion
Emory Scholar school portion
High school transcript
ED agreement

I'm just seriously panicking. Because I turned them in ALL on time.
Is this just me, should I be worried?

    I'm about to take finals and I still have one thing initiated for admissions on OPUS (lol). In fact, I found out that one of my forms never made it to Emory and I ended up turning it in a couple of weeks before the school year began.

    That being said, I would still contact the office to double check. If you turned them in recently, chances are they're still processing your application.

    Haha! Okay, that makes me feel a little better, maybe it just never got to them to update it!

    But...they were all in Oct. 31st! I don't understand what's going on. I do want to call them, but I really don't want to be annoying. Does anyone remember if it said in one of their emails to wait until end of November for them to process? I sort of recall seeing that but can't find it now..

    Definitely call them. Don't worry about being annoying. That's what they're there for.

    um been initiated for a while now for me...

    ED agreement
    Emory scholars

    3 things for me
  • nocrackupnocrackup Registered User Posts: 348 Member
    Thanks herpderp2! I'll make sure to call them... it still hasn't changed.
    JasonGom, you should make a call too, just to make sure nothing was lost? :/
  • TJC747TJC747 Registered User Posts: 510 Member
    Both Emory scholars things for me, although they may not look at that for a while - JasonGom, just check your CommonApp - if it says the ED Agreement was sent, then you have nothing to worry about.

    We called (the same 2 things are missing) and all they said were that they are swamped and it's taking awhile to get it all posted. So, not very helpful.

    I submitted Nov 14. Still have HS transcript, counselor rec, and both scholar forms initiated.

    I'm getting really anxious now!!
    There's less that 3 weeks left until the 15th!!
    What if they don't get to check our applications until then!!??
  • nocrackupnocrackup Registered User Posts: 348 Member
    Okay, seriously? FIVE THINGS STILL!! I tried to wait because I saw krug's post and thought they would be just unhelpful. But seriously....

    I have still two things left. Scholars stuffs.. Im worried too.
  • TJC747TJC747 Registered User Posts: 510 Member
    Same here Activated - don't be worried. Adcoms don't even read our Emory Scholars essays (well they don't make the decisions). They are worrying about those last because they have till mid January to make the decisions. With ED, they have till Dec 15th!
  • nocrackupnocrackup Registered User Posts: 348 Member
    Wow. I can't believe this... I STILL have five things left. Scholars, I'm not too worried about. But the ED agreement, Counselor Rec, and Transcripts are still missing. I accidentally missed to office hours today though ugh..

    Btw: next to ED agreement, does your account have a due date for it? Mine has due 11/15 for transcript/counselor, but not the ED agreement..
  • KleltsKlelts Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member
    Recs and transcript did but ED Agreement didn't have a due date.

    Both my high school and college transcripts say "initiated" (I'm applying as a transfer).
    I wouldn't be as concerned if it wasn't something as vital as my transcripts. I'm worried. I went on a tour of Emory and spoke to an admissions counselor last Tuesday and she assured me that I should be hearing from them "soon".
