Question: My guidance counselor didn't tell me about the CSS Profile form so I did not hand it in by the deadline. If I send it in about a week and a half late, are they going to accept it and is it going to count against me?
Ultimately it is YOU and not your guidance counselor who needs to stay on top of college requirements and deadlines. Colleges post this information on their Web sites and it's your responsibility to see what you must submit. Guidance counselors can't possibly keep track of all of their students' target colleges and their differing demands.
