With incomplete application your application would have been filtered out.Late application lowers your chances.So definitely you did best you could.

I applied on the 1st day although my CS results aren't out yet, I went with the earliest the better chance strategy.

Not really, its just what others have said online, but I applied sep 15, mine is incomplete, waiting for sep 26 and all, and hasnt been filtered out. Selected my progs well, once my scores come in, it'll be updated and I wont be at the bottom of the pile. I'll be adding more progs once I get my scores, but at least I already have applied to a big chunk.

Some folks got rejected with their complete apps at progs, that my incomplete app hasnt received a rejection from.

Default CK results and LORs

I'm waiting for my CK results, but also, some LORs... If it were just my score, I would have applied already...
But I really don't know what to do
I have headaches all day, every day. So stressful. Don't want to get filtered out, but I don't want to wait that late...

However, I read in some post that PDs know that some applications have documents pending, and that they take that into account. Is this true?

I too have heard that some PDs are considerate enough and give you a chance,but no one tells in which program we can find such PDs....hope you applied in such programs

i am also awaiting my cs result due in october, and my lors were uploaded just yesterday in the eras postoffice. (although i uploaded them on eras on 7th september via oasis).
programs are already retrieving the uploaded lors but i am not sure if they have already filtered me out because as of now i have not received anything from any programs!
i am getting tensed!
i guess only thing i can do right now is to pray so that programs atleast consider my application!

Many programs start calling by first week of October and most call by mid October,but there are few that keep calling till end of there deadlines....so keep your hopes up...everyone is battling his or her nerves....this forum is kind of an extended family where all help each other soothe there nerves.
All the best.
