    We faxed our letter and they accepted it.

    We had mailed the letter a week prior to ED 1 and it hadn't been received (per the website) so I called the admissions contact, and she requested that we fax it. We did (one day prior to the deadline.) She said that as long as the ED Intent letter was postmarked prior to the deadline it would have been okay -- but I saw no reason to risk it. As it turns out, my daughter was accepted ED 1, and I'm sure it didn't hurt that they knew how important it was that we called to confirm receipt, and sent another intention letter to make sure we followed all directions. I suggest that you phone your admissions contact, explain the issue, and ask for their fax number and show that you are aware of the deadline, and want to do what you can to increase your chances. You might want to think up a good (legitimate) reason as to why you didn't take care of it sooner....

    I think a family emergency is an "okay" excuse... but, you had the alternative of asking another guidance counselor to sign the form (which is what we did, because second-time trying to get it signed, our original guidance counselor was unavailable...)
