B. Processing Information

We have processed 1,383,823 (or more than 90%) of the 1,532,502
applications received in March. Of the 148,679 March applications
not yet processed, 17,136 have been transmitted to the CPS. Of the
131,543 applications not yet transmitted to CPS, we anticipate
processing the majority by Friday, April 19. However, there will be
a small number that will not be processed until April 22. We
understand your need for this application data and appreciate your
patience while we continue to process these remaining March

C. Central Processing System Compute information

As you know, last week we were unable to compute application data
on Friday because of a technical problem with the National Student
Loan Data System match. We did complete this compute Saturday,
April 13. You should have been able to draw down these
Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) anytime after late
Sunday, April 14. This week's first compute (for Monday) was also
delayed; you will receive ISIRs from today's compute on
Wednesday and, when you do, the number that you receive on that
day may be very large.

Thank you for your continued support.
