    Hi everyone,

    I am new to this forum and seeking help regarding the current application status of my DS. His status has remained "on file" and he's had his application complete around the end of January. Is this a bad sign, should he be worried at all? Is there anyone else on this forum still have a status that says "on file".

    From what I read on this forum it seems like everyone's application has been either changed to principal or is still on hold. Just a little concerned that my DS's application isn't at least on hold by this point.

    Thank you,
    USservice

    I would have your DS call the KP Admissions Dept. and ask if there is anything missing in his application. I don't know if that's the case when the portal says "On File."

    Thank you for the reply kneedeep.

    He called last week to ensure everything was complete and they informed him his file is in the midst of being evaluated and that everything is in fact complete. My only concern is that because his file hasn't been reviewed yet it will put him at a disadvantage. In other words, as other students in his state are changing from hold to principal, there is one less spot for him. Any insight or other help from someone who was in a similar situation would be greatly appreciated.

    What does it mean when your app. Status says nothing in there? It changed today from app. On file to nothing.

    I think I read somewhere that that means they will be offering you a spot at the prep school. Not 100% sure though.

    What state are you from if you don't mind me asking?

    It's somewhere in this forum I honestly can't remember exactly where, I'm sorry. However I do recommend calling admissions tomorrow to see exactly what it means. I remember reading that that is what people did and admissions told them they will be getting a spot are prep school.

    Good luck, hope it works out for you!

    Son's status changed to hold today. Did this happen to anyone else? Is this a good thing or bad thing at this point?
