has anyone checked their application status yet?
mine says 'missing' for all the items except the application fee and common app.
and.. i'm worried :O

it also says
Due to the various scenarios that fulfill our testing requirements, all checklist items may not have been "Received."

I sent ACT scores.

should i just wait? or should i call them and ask if they have everything?

    Yes! Give them a call. It won't hurt and you can sort out all your doubts.

    Mine's the same! It says everything but my common app is missing; but on the common application, it says that the uni's downloaded things such as my teacher recs and stuff.
    Did you call and find out about it? Can you let me know what they said if you did? I'm international, so it's a big costly to call :$

    As I posted in another thread in the Swat forum, it's time to (try to) chill out. It is not at all unusual for things to be reported as missing now. Swat has thousands of papers to file and this is what they are doing now. The Admissions office was closed for the holiday break. Even they need a rest from this! Last year, it wasn't until mid-February until everything seemed to be in it's proper place. Give the Admissions Office a break and wait at least into February before calling them.

    Thanks, momof3sons!

    namine, they downloaded my school forms too. And no, i didn't call them. Like momof3sons said, I guess we just need to sit back and wait!

    For anyone who is still looking at this thread, a student posted on another Swat thread recently that last year it wasn't until mid-February that everything was marked as received. I believe he also said that he received an email from Swat towards the end of January apologizing for the delay. Please try to be patient and not overwhelm the Admissions office with phone calls.

    Mine's marked as received already, but I did submit mid Dec instead of waiting until the deadline.
