    Just sent in my transcripts today for Penn and Columbia and I used FedEX. It was pretty pricey but the lady said it would be at the schools by Wednesday. FedEX gives you tracking numbers with everythings so i'm feeling good about it. I will probably submit Penn next week and then Columbia a couple days after. how's everyone else coming along?

    Hi JP999!

    Yeah I emailed nursing@columbia.edu. They are pretty quick and laid out everything that they've received from my (gre scores, transcripts, LOR's). They also said that soon enough we should be able to check online to see if everything is in. They do have a very strict deadline in having all LOR's in. So I'd be sure to have all materials in by Oct 15th!

    All of this transcript business is a nightmare! I wish there was a better way to do it...

    When do we apply for financial aid? Are they due with the applications or later on?

    Anyone else apply to UVA? The application is due tomorrow. I kind of like that all the applications aren't due at the same time. If I get in there I won't have to apply to some of my other schools and save some application money!

    I think each school has a due date for financial aid and some have it on their websites others will say after you get accepted. I know you can start applying after January 1st for FAFSA. I'm not tackling that until I at least get an interview.

    I know from reading previous year's boards that several schools send out financial aid packets via mail. I think this usually happens after the first of the year. This makes me assume that we probably don't have to bother with it until January. I am certain that every school is different though, so I would definitely contact them!

    Why do they ask what other schools you are applying to? What do they do with that information? is it important to list every single school?

    Vanderbilt is the only application that asked me that. I'm not sure what they do with it. maybe they take a tally of the other schools you are considering and see their competition. Do you have to answer it? If you're worried then don't put anything down.

    I don't think you're required to answer it... I would just leave it blank, honestly.

    I also decided to leave it blank.
