I guess with a late R1 deadline, applicants are busy finishing off with the other schools.

Re: Calling all Carlson(Minnesota) Applicants:(2016 Intake) Class of 2018! [#permalink]
Hi Can anybody help me with this:

Carlson says that we are exempt from TOEFL if "You have completed your previous education solely in English in a country where English is not an official language". And "Your transcript must indicate that English was the language of instruction."

However, For me The language of Instruction is on the Degree Certificate. The transcript doesn't have the medium of instruction. In the application, there is only 1 upload option for 1 university. Carlson specifically asked for transcript.

How should I show that my Language of Instruction is English??
Can I merge two documents? Will Carlson accept it?

Please help asap.

Thanks for the help.

Hi JA, Thanks for the quick reply. I was also thinking the same.

But will the school accept merged document?

I don't think so. Even I'm merging documents. Why do you think schools would have a concern. I think they'll be happy that you are proactively providing adequate documentation.

hmm, I was concerned since they asked specifically for transcript, we should provide only transcript. I wanted to check if others are following the same.
Thank you JA.

If I were you I wouldn't worry about providing any additional document which supports my case. Providing less is a problem. But if you still don't feel confident you can always send them an email.

Guys I'm trying to submit my application for round 1. I thought deadline for round 1 was November 1 but the application form doesn't have round 1 as an option anymore. It says previously selected round, which was round 1, no longer available. What rubbish?

Thanks BrainFog. If that doesn't work, the best we can do is submit our apps with R2 as the round and subsequently drop a mail to adcom stating that we wish to be considered for R1.

Yes that's what I was thinking. I'm gonna submit my app today in any case and drop them an email so I have the error on record. I'm sure they'll understand. Its probably a system error. I'll suggest you and anyone else facing the same issue do submit your app today. At least on record our apps will be in by the deadline.

Guys I just called them and it went straight to the voice mail. They had a regular out of office hours tape on and office hours are Monday to Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm. I guess our only option now is to select round 2 and submit it. What are you gonna do? SohamDutta 12Sums

No other option but to submit the app today, and ask them to consider in Round 1. I will submit in couple of hours with Round 2 as the option.

Ya I guess we have no other option. BTW the following is written on the application status page

If the deadline falls on a weekend or university holiday, the effective deadline will be the next business day

I don't know what to make of it.
