Harvard Application Checklist Missing Writing Supplement

greentea45greentea45 Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
A student submitted his Harvard writing supplement on a different date from the rest of his application. He received an email confirming they received the supplement over a month ago however the essays aren't listed at all on the application checklist in his portal. Is the supplement usually listed there? Should he be concerned?

    I'd suggest your student contract Harvard admissions and ask. Nobody here can really help with a definitive answer.

    I'm wondering mostly to hear about other applicants' experience to see if other applicants' writing supplements were listed in their portals or if these are traditionally left off of Harvard's checklist.

    That's the only thing that matters. The checklist does not always reflect up-to-date information. If an applicant has a question if something was received, s/he should contact admissions, but not in this case, since admissions had already confirmed receipt.

    If the students has any other questions to ask, he should ask them himself since "Asking for a friend" posts are not allowed. Closing thread.
