    If files were too big, it was essential that you compress the files to reduce the file size. It is very important that you upload each document in the designated section. If you already submitted your application, I am not sure if this will hinder your chances overall, but it would not hurt to call the Help Line- but I would do so before the 5:00PM EST deadline.

    It has been really hard to contact anyone from help line. I will keep trying even though it is after 5. I am not sure how you can compress a pdf file without changing the format.

    Good Luck! I turned mine in last week, and saw the info about transcripts. Hope it doesn't disqualify me. :-|

    With the increased number of applicants, they will for sure look for anything in the applications to be able to narrow it down. I would definitely still try and contact them to get answers. I feel if there are two things that may end up hindering applicants it will be with separating transcripts and also ordering an official SAR vs. using the one online. Hopefully it works out and nobody is disqualified because of these factors.

    I emailed them about the SAR and was told online was okay. They even pointed out the section of the guidebook that stated it. Thanks. i will definitely keep calling. They close at 8 pm.

    That is good to know about the SAR, because when I e-mailed them I got a response to call and order an official one. Either way, it is good to know that both work. Good luck with getting answers!

    I just realized the essays should have my first inital, last name, and last four of my social. Do u think this disqualifies me?

    I hope my response was not fabricated lol. I spoke with a rep and they said they really want to see the most recent transcript. Which is the one I have in the transcript portion. Hope she wasn't just sayinh anything to say it. :-/ I am so unsure now. Not too confident about my application just for the transcript and now the SAR. Ehh..Good Luck to everyone though!

    How do you log in back to view application status? Anyone knows? I went to HRSA.GOV website and couldn't find where to log in to view application status.

    to fhutchin:

    I think if they disqualified you for that, they would be pretty ridiculous. They require that info for safekeeping, meaning if your essays get separated they have a way of knowing whose file it belongs to. If everything else is okay in your application then not have your first initial and last four of your social IMO will not prevent you from getting the scholarship. Good luck and stop worrying!

    it is listed in the requirements, but it is unknown whether or not this will disqualify you from the scholarship.

    the portal is currently unavailable, at least for me. unless you did not meet one of the initial eligibility requirements, your status should be "under review." throughout the cycle last year, status' did not change unless you became ineligible throughout reviewal, but all eligible applicants had the status of "under review" until it change to "award" or "not selected for award" in august/september depending on the decision.

    patience is key for the next few months!

    Ok. Thanks so much X-Nurse14. I thought as much.I finally signed in and said application closed. I did submit my application with a confirmation of under review status.

    I am just going to pretend i didnt apply and see how it goes.
