Osap application question
Hi everyone
I have a question regarding OSAP; how long does it take for Mac to process your application and find out how much aid you should get? I submitted my application about a month and a half ago, but when I log onto OSAP and check the status of the app, it says "Your application is being processed. Please check back in mid-June for information about your funding. "
Since mid-June has passed already, I'm wondering if anyone else is still waiting, or if its just me. Does anyone know how much longer it should be? I'm trying to make a mini budget for next year, but its kind of hard to plan when I don't know how much I'll be getting. Thanks in advance for all your help!

PS. When I first submitted my application at the end of May, I forgot to include the "Other Documents" sheet with the other papers. I mailed it in about a week later seperately, could this be why its taking so long or am I just impatient? lol

PPS. Sorry, I posted this already in the financial aid part of macinsiders, but it didn't appear on the updates thing and no one answered me (I'm assuming for the aforementioned reason) so I thought I'd try my luck here. I tried deleting my old post but didn't know how. If anyone does, I'd appreciate you sharing your knowledge

When in doubt just ask. Weird cause I just submitted my OSAP application yesterday and I got a rough estimate already. Call the financial aid office and see if they got your application+docs.

Have you checked under the "get estimate" option? My status hasn't been updated yet but I can see a rough estimate of what I should expect to receive in terms of grants and loans this year if I look under that.

Thanks everyone I can get an estimate, but I had an estimate last year that wasn't even close to accurate so I didn't want to put too much stock in that. I emailed the osap people at Mac and I'm waiting for a reply but my guess is that, like someone else said, I might have to just wait a little longer until mid-July (they are getting a lot of applications right now after all).
