If you're waiting on something from PACE

I posted this in an MT thread then thought I'd cut and paste here just in case anyone is still waiting on something from PACE:

"Not MT, my son is Acting though and we too have gotten phone calls but no letters from PACE. We keep being told to expect something in the mail within a week. We have never received anything, although they do keep calling my S to see how he is coming along in his decision making process.
I called today to find out why we've not gotten any financial aid info and found out that there was some sort of problem with his admission. Apparently his application was showing as "complete, waiting for review".

My S called Grant and within an hour, they had lifted that and phoned him that he is now admitted. Grant also texted. When following up with the financial aid department on the phone, I got the same "expect something in a week" line, we've been getting all along. Sorry... not gonna hold my breath on that one!

If you've not heard from them, I suggest a call. My son was encouraged to apply right after unified LA, which he did. Then, he was told he was admitted by phone , and then over a week ago, when we called to check in, found that they didn't have everything they needed, some sort of problem with data transfer from common app that we were not alerted to. We worked to make sure they had all required documents by both email and fax to the admissions department. In thinking back... I don't think they have ever contacted us to let us know there was a problem, but every time we've checked in, there has been a firm roadblock in place requiring attention before anything can move forward."
