<p>Does the application need to be in the mail postmarked by Nov. 1, or Does it have to be in the Adcom's hands by Nov. 1?</p>

<p>Usually it only needs to be postmarked by that date. To be safe I would call the ad office or check the website. Actuallyit should say something about it on the app itself.</p>

<p>It says that it just has to be postmarked by Nov. 1.
In fact, my counselor said that it doesn't even matter if it's slightly late; they've never turned back apps before.</p>

<p>whew thanks guys. Is it okay if they send in the recommendations on Nov. 1?</p>

<p>Sure I think so. The office will be incredibly busy anyway. It's not like they'll get to your app on the 1st anyway. Where are you applying?</p>

<p>Recommendations don't really need to be in by Nov 1. My teacher, when I asked her about it, was like "don't bother me! I haven't started yet! they can be late" meh i sure hope so.</p>

<p>To Princeton. Man, one of my teacher and my counselor can't do it cause he got to go to a hockey game. Holy crap. What kind of excuse is that? Man I hate alaskan education.</p>

<p>lol no I think a lot of teachers aren't being as diligent as they should be with these. It's not their lives at stake...</p>

<p>Where in Alaska? My friend just got back from Ketchikan</p>

<p>Whoa, not Ketchikan. I live in the big city of Anchorage. 300,000 people! Woot woot! (thats about half the population in Alaska, btw)</p>

<p>that's really cool, do you have a better shot at Princeton if you live far away?</p>

<p>I don't really know. I think there is only 1 or 2 people attedning Princeton from this state. I guess its diverse, actually come to think of it, its erally diverse here. Lots of BLacks, asians, eskimo, but not very many hispanics.... hmm.</p>

<p>Geographic advantage for sure.</p>

<p>Hey, just a question, what does it take to be an AP scholar with distinction? I have 5 AP tests that I passed.</p>

<p>Alaska rocks! I wish I could go there...</p>

<p>Yes, it's cold. I like cold. That's what I just wrote an essay about.</p>

<p>no kidding astrix! that ought to be one heck of a <em>cool</em> essay (jks :) --> its the stress)
hobbes334, don't panic, just mail it on monday & you'll be fine.</p>

<p>Na it was okaish, and now I'm just getting really desperate coz my other 2 essays aren't complete. I'm thinking of sending it Nov 2. They won't refuse my application, will they? And where did you courier it gianevve - the PO box?</p>

<p>astrix - i don't think they'll turn your application away...considering it was sent all the way from India; for all they know there could be a mailing problem. But you should try to get it in asap, in case other people from your country have long since sent theirs. I sent mine through to their physical address and put the box # below it.</p>

<p>ah okay....</p>
