Help! Worried about supplemental essay

Submitted my app to Upenn but I realized my writing supplement wasn’t submitted so I ended up submitting it 15 minutes after the deadline. I was hoping for a grace period but on the Commonapp it says ‘downloaded’ for my main application but only ‘submitted’ for the writing supplement. Should I wait it out or contact them???

Wait to contact your AO until you get your portal set-up, then see if all application requirements are checked as received.

Good luck.

Yes, there can also be a little processing delay after submitting. My guess is you’re fine. Wait and see, as Mwfan suggests.

It will be downloaded overnight tonight. Check tomorrow. It should be fine. (Downloading appears to happen at some particular time at night, every 24 hrs)
