    It is perfectly ok that you forgot the quotation marks. I promise the grammar police will not come banging down your door. I hope that this answers your question

    Yes, I made a post on January 12, and I didn't use quotation marks on a paragraph. It should have had quotation marks since they are not my words, but it is information from a website. I was wanting to just add them to the post. I emailed the forum administrator today and just want to update the post, I wasn't sure how long it would take. If it's not a big deal please let me know, but I just want to make sure that my posts are accurate.

    Hi, how long does it take to hear back from forum administrator after I send an email? I'm hoping to hear back soon. Anybody that can help me would be appreciated.

    Hello,
    My name is Emily Glazer and I'm a reporter for The Wall Street Journal newspaper. I'm working on an article about tackling the financial aid process and saw your smart comments on College Confidential.

    Specifically, I was interested in the advice you gave on appealing financial aid awards at college. Did you go through that experience yourself?

    If so, are you open to a brief phone interview for the story? I'd love to hear more about your experience and how you made it a successful one.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Emily

    No, the information that the GC is giving is not correct. The student can still appky RD during this admissions cycles. Many counselors will not send the RD materials until the student has been released from ED.

    Your D's friend should keep in mind that when she/her parents sign the ED agreement, they are giving permission to share the information that she was admitted to ED to their school with other schools (you would be suprised to know how small the world of college admissions really is).

    I see. If the student can still go ahead and submit her RD applications, that seems fairer--the guidance counselor's actions would not prevent the student from applying RD if she hadn't gotten acknowledgment from the school. My daughter's friend was told, by her guidance counselor, that she would not be able to apply RD in the same year if she were accepted ED but had to decline for financial reasons; that is, if she had to decline, she would have to wait a year and apply then. That seemed incorrect to me, as well as unfair.
