App Tracking System

Has anyone who applied RD been able to get on the application tracking website yet? I tried registering with my e-mail and pin, but they said it was incorrect.

I'm assuming it's because it takes a few days to process applications and they might be on vacation, but I wanted to make sure I didn't do something wrong on my end.

    I applied on 12/24.

    I receive email on 12/25 - "Princeton University has received your application and has opened a file for you. You may use the Princeton Application Tracking System (Princeton University | Application Checklist) to follow the progress of your application as it moves through the admission process. This personalized tracking system will confirm which materials we have received and which might still be needed to complete your application. To access this online system, you will first need to register using the e-mail address and PIN you provided on your application. We also will send you an e-mail when your application is complete."

    I got confirmation on 12/26 - "The Princeton Admission Office has received all the required pieces of your application. Your application is complete." Everything is automated coming from CommonApp. They probably won't look at anything until next week since 12/15 was an "if possible" date, and no one is around over the holiday break.

    Also on 12/26 - Depending on your location, you may receive another email regarding alumni interview - "Thank you for applying to Princeton University. As part of the application process we try to offer all applicants the opportunity to talk with an alumni volunteer. This will be an opportunity for you to learn more about the Princeton experience and for us to learn more about you, in a relaxed and informative conversation. Please expect to be contacted by XXXXX XXXXX (XXXXXXXXX@alumni.princeton.edu), a member of the Princeton interview committee in your area, to arrange a convenient meeting time and place."

    How long does it take for your SAT score to get there? I sent mine on 22nd, and Princeton has not received it. When do you think it will get there?
