With all that money being fed into them and all the prestige of being a university, one must remember that people are turning all the gears within a college. We know people can sometimes be dumb, which translates to universities handling paper work in a less-than-perfect way. Applications, financial aid, room selection, and any other piece of paper turned into a college can be handled wrong. Lost mail, bad faxes, or careless employees can royally affect how smoothly a college transition goes so remember to stay proactive. Call or email offices to remind them that you did your end of the work and that they must follow through. Worst-case scenario is that you file some paper work and it never gets process because no one made sure to check if everything went as it should. Think of all college paper work as a million dollar check that you deposit at the bank. Chances are that you’ll be making sure that that million-dollar check finds its way home safely. Apply this same method to anything turned in to a university and make sure to save/print any evidence that proves you didn’t do anything wrong. Cover all your bases when making this transition.
