  1. Hey can someone please clarify the update for the 2020/2021 application cycle? Will the 2019/2020 academic year not qualify for one of the two years in the weighted 2yr GPA?! I took a 5th year this year solely to improve my GPA and if they aren't counting these grades, I wasted a whole year's tuition / living expenses for nothing D: Also, just to add - I completely understand ADCOM's decision - especially given these unprecedented circumstances.

  9. Haha ok, slight overreaction on my part but I figure that verifiers are all contacted electronically (without adcoms actually overseeing any of this) so it would automatically be void. Thankfully, I was able to edit the verifier contact information. PHEW.
  10. For one of my entries, I put the email where the phone number is supposed to go and the phone number where the email is supposed to go! What do I do? D:
  11. Where are referees supposed to include how they know/worked with the applicant?
