If using The Common Application company this year, some students may think they have submitted their college application when it fact, the application may not have been accepted by the company’s website due to technical difficulties.
You should have your student double check the status of their college application by contacting The Common Application’s online help center. The Common Application says they are working to correct the problems.
To be balanced in this post, I’m also including a link to The Common Application’s statement of commitment below. This link is to balance the information in this post with the N.Y. Times link above. I can attest that over the 9 years I’ve used The Common Application to supply colleges with information about countless students, I’ve never had a problem. Hopefully this information is helpful to any seniors who may have a common app in limbo.
