The applications are sent, but there's always more to do. The fun part comes when a couple schools accept you, and you get to pick your favorite.
The applications are all sent off, but the schools have to review them. They'll let you know if there's anything else they need from you. When they decide whether or not to accept you, they'll let you know. "Follow up on your application" tells you how to respond when schools send you letters.
Respond to Requests for Additional Application Materials
Sometimes parts of an application don't arrive when you expect them. If a school doesn't get your complete application, they will let you know what is missing. If that happens, all you have to do is send the appropriate materials to the school that needs them.
Inform Schools of Your Choice
When schools accept you, they plan for your arrival. You need to let each school know whether you have chosen to attend there or elsewhere.
