    Just sent in my app, does anyone know if there is a portal where we can see if our application has been submitted and then see if we are accepted?

    Same here, Jumbo. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my essays!

    Hi! I submitted my application a couple of weeks ago and I have not gotten an e-mail from Williams yet saying they have everything. I did get an e-mail from the common app saying everything was submitted but I'm worried that I have not heard from williams. When do they send you the e-mail? Do you have to have all your teacher recs and school materials in before they give u you a williams account?

    Hey Elle1997, I submitted my app on Nov 9 and then received an email leading me to my Williams account on Nov 11. My counselor has not sent in everything though. Make sure you've already checked your spam.

    Elle, definitely time to call or email admissions. My S applied on Friday and received email on Sunday. I did see somewhere on their site that they would begin acknowledging applications on November 6th but that is already six days ago. That checking spam suggestion is wise too!

    I sent my application on Nov. 6, and Williams sent me an email on Nov. 7 that they acknowledged my application. My Williams Account states that everything I sent was retrieved on the seventh.

    A few questions for other ED people. Have any of your counselors submitted an ED agreement? That's the only thing my application is missing so far. I asked my counselor if retrieved any email regarding an ED agreement, but she said she hasn't gotten anything yet. Just wondering if this is the same for everyone else.

    Also, anyone still filling out paperwork for Financial Aid? According to Williams, the deadline to submit material for financial aid is the fifteenth.

    You ought to check the Counselor's agreement on the CommonApp Assign recommender, in my case my counselor submitted it and now there's a "Downloaded" sign next to the ED Agreement field.

    Can everyone here see their application checklist? I was able to see it a few days ago but can't now. It only has my address and application number.

    Questionaut,

    Having the same issue, the checklist was there and is now gone as of today.

    Harvester,

    Good to hear I'm not the only one. Does that mean we were denied you think? I know it's stupid to say so but at least in the past with other schools, your account would be "closed down" after a denial (at least in the Harvard situation from a previous thread I read).

    But it's hard to believe they would have made a decision in 3 days. Would you mind sharing your stats either here or privately? If you're a qualified applicant then I doubt they would have cut you before going to the whole admissions board.

    As for me, my academic transcript isn't stunning, nor are my SATs. Weighted GPA is over a 100, UW is like a 93. SATs were 740 CR, 660 M, 800 W (220). No rank but I'm in the top 10 percent. That's why I was afraid I was "weeded out" by the initial readers, so I'm wondering if it could have been the same for you.

    EDIT: Looked at your post history and saw you were a recruited athlete, so I don't think that's likely that we were already denied, unless I made a mistake.

    My checklist disappeared too. I don't think it necessarily means 'denial'... I mean, they don't make decisions that fast right? My counselor has yet to send in everything.
    Questionaut, your scores are fine. Don't worry too much. Everyone seems to have this 'gone checklist' issue.
