Application Status?

My daughter submitted her ED common application and received an email from Northwestern saying basically "thanks for applying ED" and "we'll let you know if we are missing anything". Does NU do any other means of tracking your application status? Some schools provide a webpage. With the problems with the common app, just want to be sure we don't miss anything.

    Unfortunately NU has no webpage for admission. The two offices that seem to be a little behind the times are admission (the server had trouble getting decisions out RD, and a little trouble ED, along with no webpage) and housing. If your daughter gets in she should pay as much attention to housing info as possible, get those things done quickly, and probably find a roommate instead of going blind. I could go into more detail, but that's really just a tangent. Long story short, there's no way to track anything, but they're pretty good about communicating when you need something.

    How long did it take before she got that email? I submitted my ED application yesterday, but I have yet to get a confirmation email. Thanks!

    I'm curious to hear the answer to oshay's question as well, as I applied about 30 minutes ago...

    I think mine took almost two weeks last year. It's not a quick response

    Just so you know, I got mine today! (so like 5 days after)

    I am applying RD, but I submitted my application among with my ED school 6 days ago and I received an email today.

    I ended up receiving mine 6 days later as well. Never got confirmation from Common App that they had processed this app (which I did for my other apps) so this was a relief!
