    When I use the application ID to log in to the Portal and click on check application status it just goes to a blank page. Is that what is supposed to happen?

    We thought the same thing at first. Perhaps you may have missed the very tiny “Main menu” choice that is above the University of Pittsburgh dark blue “banner” as we did. If so, simply select “Main menu,” then “self service,” next “Admissions,” and finally, “Application status.”

    How long after submitting the application do you receive the email with ID information?
  • EagerlyawaitingEagerlyawaiting Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    About a week. I think it may have said it could take up to two weeks, but I’m not sure if I remember that correctly as it did not take that long.

    @DCNatFan there was an email 2-3 business days after submission with Pitt Portal instructions. The "Pitt ID - keep this handy email" came after the application was marked "complete" in the portal.

    Hello, I am a senior male applying to nursing at Pitt:
    GPA: 94
    SAT: 1250... I am taking it again in October
    Is it a good idea to still apply now even though I will be taking the SAT in October and it will be over a month before those scores come in?
  • shortnukeshortnuke Registered User Posts: 520 Member
    I suspect that the first batch of decisions may be a bit later this year since this is the first year that Pitt is accepting the Common App. They will likely receive many more applications compared to previous years and will need to make sure that everything is working with the Common App submissions. Don't get too stressed if you don't hear anything for a few more weeks.

    D19 submitted her app on 9/8 and we received the Pitt ID e-mail today. Have not received anything about the portal log-in though.

    For people who already submitted their application, I have a question: on the short answers/essays, did the formatting make it so you couldn't have paragraph breaks? So if you typed in your short answer with a few different paragraphs, it looked like one giant paragraph when you reviewed it? I'm just wondering if this is true for everyone or if it's a problem to be fixed.

    The person we called at the admissions office today said that that had been a problem for years and all the application essays turn out like that and there's nothing that can be fixed. However, the person at admissions my son talked to yesterday said he should contact the "helpdesk". It has been 36 hours now and the "helpdesk" hasn't emailed back yet.
