Question about ED app!!

<p>for early decision, is the application supposed to be received BY november 1st, or postmarked by november 1st??</p>

<p>postmarked i believe...but really, it shouldn't be too big a deal if you don't turn it in on time. i turned in my cornell RD about the second week in January, and I was golden (granted we had tons of snow that yr and thus I didn't get my transcript and all that done in time). but don't take my word on it, i might be an exception. call cornell and bother carol :-p but she's cool.</p>
