Possible Reasons Interfolio Cannot Process Your Deliveries to Medical/Dental School
As mentioned above there are some applications Interfolio is not able to support. We would love to be able to get all of your materials to the proper destination, but sometimes it is out of our hands. Here are a few reasons why an Interfolio delivery may be put on hold or cancelled:
The recipient requires supplemental questions; as a 3rd party Interfolio cannot answer on behalf of your evaluators.
Even if you or the evaluator gave Interfolio the answers, we still cannot provide the answers on their behalf. Interfolio could be held liable if any information we supply on their behalf is not accurate. Oftentimes we will not know what the form includes until our processing team gets started on the delivery. Please allow for enough time in between submitting your applications and getting letters delivered. Please pay close attention to Interfolio's processing window times for all delivery types.
There are not enough delivery credits in your account to process the delivery.
You can always add more delivery credits to your account if you run out. Click here for information on how to add delivery credits to your Dossier Deliver subscription.
The submitted letters do not include proper formatting.
Please check with your schools and the application services to see what is proper formatting for a letter of recommendation. Interfolio already quality checks your letters when they are included in a delivery.
