Is anyone else in this situation when their materials *should* have been submitted? I'm nervous, but there's not much to do as we're all on break.

I just got my tracking ID today (submitted app 3 days ago) and it says basically none of my school documents have been received - secondary school report, recs. My school system says the transcript + school report were sent out two weeks ago. I'm pretty sure my teachers have sent out the recs as they've been pretty good about being prompt for past deadlines, and I gave it to them with a good few weeks' notice. Is there just some delay due to the high volume of apps coming in?

Thanks for any feedback!

    I'd say stay calm and maybe ask your counselor. Schools are much more lenient with school forms than the materials you submit on your own. Give it several days.

    Similar things happened to me in the Early Action round.

    I'd say be calm. Talk to your counselor and maybe wait a couple days. If your status doesn't update, give Princeton an e-mail "inquiring if they have all your materials"
