Is it too late to sign up for the FPF ?

stevenluostevenluo Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
I sent my FPF reservation form and fee on Monday March 28th, is it too late?
Because I sent those through mail, it probably takes several days to get delivered to FPF office.
I worry that I can't get a space in FPF, so I wonder is it too late to sign up the FPF?
Also, how do they notify us that we have a space in FPF ??

    I don't think you're too late, it took my FPF about 4 days to process and I sent it on Friday Mar 25th.

    They'll notify you by putting a checkmark next to "Enroll in the Fall Program for Freshmen (optional)" under "Next Steps" after you log in here (myBerkeleyApplication : Berkeley).

    I sent it on Monday 28th, so far, I still can't see the check mark by "Enroll FPF" on the "Next step", should I call them or wait longer? What happen if the mail is lost and how would I know the mail is failed to deliver?
  • shinjitaishinjitai Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    Typically you should wait 2-7 business days before you call them. Unless you mailed it at the post office and applied tracking to your snail mail, there's no way to know if it failed to deliver if it doesn't get there. :/ Hope you get the checkmark soon!

    Ok, I got a problem right here, I've got a space in FPF right now. And under the "myChecklist", they say that I need to set up the CalMail account. When I click to link to create it, it says that "I'm not currently eligible to create a CalMail account.

    Does anyone have the same problem as me?

    Did you use the link they provided @ "Next Steps"? It used that link and it worked out perfectly.

    PS- Where is "myChecklist"? I still haven't received any news about my RSVP :(! What program did you choose by the way :)?
  • stevenluostevenluo Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
    I used the link under "Next Steps" too, it still doesn't work. I just notice there is a check mark on FPF, which means that my space is reserved. So I assume they aren't ready to let me create my CalMail, but I don't know. It should work, but I tried so many times, still doesn't work out.

    "myChecklist" is on the very top, there are several tabs, such as Home, myChecklist, myEvent, etc.

    Have you sign up for the CalSO? I also have an issue about registering the CalSO.

    I wonder are all these things related to my deferred SIR fee.
  • MisterB7KMisterB7K Registered User Posts: 344 Member
    I got the "deferred SIR fee" too. I doubt it's the problem why you can't get a calnet... hmmm try emailing them for help. They tend to reply very quickly, but since it's the weekend, you'll prob get the reply @ Monday.

    Ah darn it, the checklist tab is not there :( ! Is the checklist tab mainly for the FPF event?
  • stevenluostevenluo Registered User Posts: 45 Junior Member
    OK, did you set up your CalMail right after you notice your space for FPF is reserved? or did you wait for a couple days before you set up the CalMail?
    I emialed them already, but it just bugs me when this thing happens on me... I wanna get it fixed ASAP...

    Well, the "myChecklist" shows what you need to do and there is a deadline. So i can't go through them to make sure everything is on track.. I think there is something wrong on your calnet too
