Question about late college applications?





Hello, recently I applied for a college that's due date was on January 15. I was able to send in my application on the 14 with no problems. However I was confused with my schools policy on sending Resumes and SAT scores and didn't realize I had do to that stuff all on my own. I was able to make it to the post office on the 14th and mailed my resume with a letter of recommendation. However since it was so close to the weekend and MLK day was on that Monday, they informed me that it wouldn't arrive to the University until the Tuesday.I also sent my SAT scores online in PRIORITY and I was told it would arrive in 1-2 days. So my question is would a University still take it considering I SENT it before the deadline? And I filled out a resume online so how bad would it effect my chances of getting in if they don't accept my written Resume, and letter of recommendation.Also in confusion I ordered for my school to set up a transcript on DECEMBER 2 and I believed that I had to go to the office to pick it up. However when you order it, they actually send it, and I didnt realize that. So my other question is, would a University still keep a record of transcripts if the application and essays didn't come until a month later?Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thanks in advance!

    I assume they’ll still take it, but its up to them. Anyhow, this goes in the “can’t do anything about it so don’t worry about it” pile. I’d just move forward as if you had sent it on time (blame the delays on the post office), and bug them regularly to make sure they got it and are working on it.
