    I have a question about DS' portal. On the right is a box listing the currently missing documents (i.e. 7th semester grades). On the left is a blank box. Is this box supposed to have any information in it?

    I'm not sure about that box. I have found the admissions office to be very responsive to application questions. Have the applicant email admissions and you will have a prompt answer.

    Now, this is from looking at 2021 applicant's portals, so things might have changed, but the left 'blank' box didn't have anything in it that I remember. The missing documents/tests/etc. are all on the same side. That said, @kpmom2013 is completely correct, KP admissions is great to deal with and have the applicant email for clarification. :) Best of luck!

    It isn't the best informative portal compared with the other academies for sure!

    We are confused by the USMMA portal. Part 1 done, but how do you get to the rest of it? Are we missing something? We see the box with everything that's missing or needs to be done. Surely it's not all mailed in, is it? And what is the essay - how do you get to that? This one is quite different than the others! Guess we call in to admissions!

    The application is done in parts, listed on the website. Items are submitted by snail mail.
