How lenient is Princeton when it comes to receiving school forms? My guidance counselor has been very busy this semester which results in the fact that she won’t be able to submit the school forms before the deadline. Do you think it will hurt or actually ruin my application if the school report, transcript and international student supplement arrive a bit after the deadline? (probably about 2nd or 3rd of January).

Thank you

    Schools like P spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and manhours to elicit great applications. There's not some delete **** with his thumb on a button to auto reject every incomplete file that comes in.

    Every one of those colleges is ecstatic you're applying and are hoping to be able to admit you.

    If something is truly missing from your file, do you think they just shred it? They contact you or the school. That's how it works.

    Thank you :) So you think that what you're saying about Princeton applies to other Ivies? I'm applying to Harvard and Yale as well.
