Linking update

I was chatting with a colleague about the scanning and linking process today. First of all, you should know that the administrative staff, the people who scan documents and then electronically file them, is working pretty much non-stop (including weekends) to finish linking all the documents you've sent us. They seem to think they'll be done by the end of the week or this weekend, which means they might start contacting you about missing documents next week. So, if you've been worrying about your status, just sit tight for another week. You aren't in trouble. You won't be penalized if something is missing.

What else should you be doing? Well, nothing much. There is no need to send letters, more recommendations, or copies of the term paper you just finished.

Oh, and if you got the mid-year reminder email today, don't fret. It's a reminder. If you already know that your counselor is sending those, there's no need to run to the guidance office tomorrow morning in a panic.
