Carleton Architecture

A photo of dinosaurbones dinosaurbones
Hello, this is addressed to anybody who has applied to Carleton Architecture.

The date received shown on my application summary on Carleton Central is April 8 but my portfolio arrived on March 30, according to Canada Post. Does anybody else have this problem? And do you know if it'll affect my chances of receiving an offer since my portfolio was "received" after the due date?

I just checked my carleton application summary and it also says April 8th, when FedEx said it arrived April 1st. This should be a mistake on their part.
I would call them just to make sure, because I remember reading in their portfolio requirements package it said that portfolios recieved after April 1 would be reviewed later and only considered as an addition to an already-existing waiting list. Oy...

mine says April 8th as well. And I got a confirmation saying that it was received on March 17th, 2011.

Quoi?!?!?

I contacted Carleton and they told me that my portfolio was submitted before the deadline. April 8 is the date when the Carleton Central Account was updated, not the date the portfolio was received. Most likely, we're all in the same scenario, so we don't have anything to worry about! :)

When does Carleton start to accept people? I'm so anxious to hear from them.

I've already been accepted (to engineering), however as i'm aware it takes a while for architectural applicants to be accepted, simply because they wait for a majority of people to hand in their portfolios. I heard this on carletons youtube channel!
