Welcome to the other side of the January 10 deadline — the side where all the work shifts from applicants to Admissions staff. Nearly all the work, that is. If you haven’t already received an email saying your application is complete (and most of you who applied yesterday haven’t), then you’ll need to stay on top of this until you finally hear from us.
To that end, here are the instructions for tracking your application.
AFTER YOU SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, your Application Status page will display the information you need to track your application.
To access your Application Status Page you can either click the “Start an Application” link on the Admissions website or save the application link. You will login with the email and password you used when you created your application.
How Do I Know If My Application is Incomplete or Complete?
Even after you have submitted all the required materials, your application will wait until a staff member has reviewed each document to check that it is correct and legible. Only then is the application considered complete and ready to be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Your Application Status page displays the most up-to-date information on your application status. Please allow us up to 10 days after we receive your materials to update your record. It isn’t that checking each application takes a long time, but there are a great number to review and we want to get it right.
Your application will be marked as incomplete if we find that items are missing, your transcripts are difficult to read or not translated into English, or your application fee has not been received (with the exception of fee waivers). If we are missing materials or cannot read application documents, we (Fletcher Admissions) will contact you.
Fletcher Admissions will also send you a confirmation email when all of your application materials have been compiled and your application is ready to be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Once your application is complete, there’s nothing more you need to do (except wait).
Please Note: Whether your application is processed first or last has no bearing on your admissions decision. But you do need to ensure that you have sent us all the needed materials.
When Will I Receive My Decision?
Decisions will be released toward the end of March. We will send a message to the email address you used on your application. March decision information will also include details about scholarship awards for students admitted in March or in December (Early Notification).
If you have further questions, please email us or call us at +1.617.627.3040.
Please use the email address that you included in your application on all email messages to the office. We try to respond to every message on the same day we receive it, but due to the large number of emails we receive, it can take several days for us to reply to you.
This part of the admissions process certainly requires some patience. Whether you’re waiting for confirmation your application is complete, or for the answer to a question, or for your decision to arrive in March, you can be sure we’re working as hard as we can to make everything go quickly and smoothly. It’s in the interest of the Admissions staff, as well as that of our applicants.
