What did I do wrong?

<p>Today I got an e-mail from Northwestern University, where I applied to for fall admission:</p>

<p>"Dear boeing767,</p>

<p>Because we have not received all required materials, we assume you have decided not to complete your application for admission. We have therefore withdrawn your application."</p>

<p>What? I submitted ALL required materials way in advance, which was also reflected in the application status website. Now they tell me that they withdraw my application without notifying which material was missing!? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?</p>

<p>What can I do now? I shot an e-mail back asking for an explanation. Should I call up the school?</p>

<p>definitely call the school!</p>

<p>Call Immediately!!!</p>

<p>Call them and stay until they pick up.</p>

<p>No one's picking up! ****!</p>

<p>you may have to wait till tomorrow, but i wouldn't give up, especially if you're sure that they're the ones who have made a mistake. be persistent!</p>

<p>Look for the office hours online. Call as soon as they open tomorrow. If you can't, call as soon as you can.</p>

<p>They said that they don't have my test scores and asked me to fax them over by the end of the business day.</p>

<p>I don't have my SAT scores in hard copy; lost in mail.</p>

<p>What do I do now? :(</p>

<p>You can see and print a copy at collegeboard.com</p>

<p>By the way, I've verified with College Board that my test scores were sent.</p>

<p>This is a conspiracy!</p>

<p>does your school have anything anything at all on file- some schools get the scores and maybe your school can fax them from their machine, from their files</p>

<p>at least it is something</p>

<p>No conspiracy ... just thousands and thousands of pieces of paper, combined with the fact that the folks in the admissions office are human beings. Mistakes can happen. Make sure you print out documentation of the date your scores were sent to NW, along with the scores themselves. Does the NW website still reflect your status as all materials being received? If so, print that off, too. Write a VERY NICELY WORDED letter to go along with these items. FAX all to the admissions office TOMORROW --- you can do this at a copy center (or maybe your school gc will let you do it?) --- it won't cost you more than a few dollars, and it will be worth it. Good luck.</p>
