Is it normal for colleges to receive school forms weeks before the full application?

<p>I'm currently working with teachers and school officials on the Transfer Common App's school forms (I've already sent in a few recommendations), and it's going to be a few weeks before I submit my actual applications.
Do admissions officers begin to keep a record on you once they receive these forms? Or will they dump them because they have no idea who I am?</p>

<p>I would submit the supplements, so then they have a file for you.</p>

<p>Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they could form a file based on the applicant ID labeled on every page of the school forms... Not to mention my name and personal information.</p>

<p>Probably, but I'm just saying what I did. I didn't have anything sent until the supplement was done.</p>

<p>What I've heard is that they'll just compile all of your stuff together and keep track of it until you have everything submitted.</p>
