So, About those Common App Glitches… Reply

I’m guessing that most college applicants have heard about – or possibly experienced firsthand – the problems plaguing the Common App online interface recently. If you haven’t here are a couple news stories that should bring you up to speed:

While the difficulties have been fixed at this time – supposedly – that still doesn’t negate the fact that this caused significant stress and hardship for many applicants. We want to hear from you about this. Vote in our poll and leave any comments you have about your personal experience below, and we’ll put up another blog post discussing the results in a few weeks. In the meanwhile, fingers crossed that no more glitches pop up. At very least this should be great motivation to not leave your applications until the last minute!
