Application deadlines?

<p>I thought the application deadlines was January 15th, however, when I go to application status it says: The JMU Office of Admissions processes documents (electronic and paper) in the order in which they are received. We are currently processing documents received on February 1st and online applications received on January 30th. Seems strange.</p>

<p>the application deadline is january 15th, what they mean is transcripts and applications that are received by the school on the 30th, but they would have to have been sent by the applicant on the 15th, which would have been postmarked on the documents. For whatever reason, they took a long time to arrive in the mail.</p>
