Hello.

Could you tell me if the three options below are OK in the following sentence?

- "Applications sent after the timings are not entertained/considered/evaluated."

Thanks a lot.

    I think 'considered' is the best option. I also suggest that 'deadline' be used instead of 'timings' which is an odd word to use in this context.

    I'd go for 'considered' as being the best alternative there: you 'entertain' an idea or a suggestion but not an application, and 'evaluate' doesn't really fit the context (they're not even going to look at late applications, let alone evaluate them).

    And I agree with R-T about changing "timings" to 'deadline'. :)
