If your son can still send his application without the counsellor reporting it on the screen, the school can simply fax an agreement that the counsellor must sign.
It may be that all you need to do is change your “application decision” into the “Preferred Admission Plan” and it will be automatically changed for you. However, if you do, your advisor needs to re-sign the ED tab for your new school
Do any of you have this problem? My advisor submitted the school report (yay – it says “Filed on 16.10.12 in addition to “school report”). However, directly via “School Report” it says “ED Agreement – Counselor Component” and next to it there is no “submitted”. If you scroll down, there`s ED Agreement – Parent Component” and that says submitted 9/6. In addition, the “Additions” section indicates that I filed the ED agreement on 8.9. So why doesn`t he have the consultant-ED agreement? I know my advisor is in favour of using ED. She told me. If she didn`t receive an email from Common App about this ED agreement, like my mom, how can I reach her?
Lakemom, thank you very much! That`s a good idea. Do you think that if it is made by a phone call and “submitted” is not written next to “ED Agreement – Counselor Component”, would that prevent the common application from being filed by my son? (In other words, at the end, when he clicks “Send”, would he be filed with a “Cannot be filed because ED Agreement-Counselor” is not submitted? I ask myself the question because the common application would not know that the counsellor took the phone and called the university to give her agreement….). What do you think?
The common app is so crazy that for everything you know, the date 10-16-12 has to cover both the ED agreement and the consultant forms.
One I think is that if the consultant really sent his share (did you ask directly if the counselor did it?), then you need to know if the college did it, but for some reason it doesn`t appear on your son`s common app screen.
After your son asked with the counselor, you can definitely call college to find out if they did.
I`d ask your counselor first before I called the university`s admissions department.
We emailed the consultant today. She recalled that she did not do so because she planned to check with him if he still wanted to use ED (some children change their minds during the trial). So today it filed its “ED agreement” – and now it says “filed 18.10.12” alongside “ED AGgreement – Counselor Component”!! Yay! All that remains is to wait for the two letters from teachers.
My son sent polite memories on Saturday to say he needed everything until 31.10. And on Tuesday, they both sent an email saying they were going to get them in. They both love it, so I think they`re only inundated with requests for letters (that`s how the counselor told us – she told us she would help them and talk to them if they weren`t there until 29.10.). The deadline for college is 11/15, but my son wants to have 2 weeks to make sure everything is in it and send things back if necessary. . . .
