Advice for Students Using CommonApp
CommonApp now has more than 500 of the nations colleges/universities on their register. A program that used to provide students with the opportunity to be quite creative and individualistic has fallen far short of that goal. This year CommonApp released a new version of the application and has been plagued with problems ever since for all involved. As different problems are exposed, the company has worked feverishly to find solutions. The problem lies in the fact that students do not necessarily know that there is a problem. CollegeBound strongly suggests that students check back regularly to verify that completed applications have been submitted. A completed application includes the general application, application fee, supplement (if the college has one), and supporting documentation from recommender(s) and counselor, which includes the transcript. The student must also remember to send their official scores from the testing agency.
