What to do if all of your documents aren't ready for application deadlines?
I am going into my sophomore year in South Africa, and I was wondering what to do if all my documents aren't ready yet. Our curriculum and term/semester time dates aren't the same. It says in the application, that we need to send in our mid-year for documentation for senior year. I really want to apply Early decision to Columbia university and the ED deadline is normally around November of my junior year. Also our senior year mid-year is in June! It also says that we need a certificate of secondary school completion, but our school year only ends in November/December senior year. Could someone help me pls?
