Troubled Common App site repaired and ready for January deadlines

Monday, December 30, 2013

Earlier this year, changes to the Common Application caused widespread problems, worrying students, parents, high school counselors and college admissions officials. As the January 1 application deadline at the nation's selective colleges approaches, these glitches appear to be stabilizing.

According to Inside Higher Ed, a publication focusing on higher education in America, many admissions officers now view the revamped Common App with more optimism. The publication reached out to college admissions officers across the country, and found that many believe they will be able to process students' applications as normal with little to no disruption. However, to mitigate the potential for delays, some schools have pushed their application deadlines back by a week or more to avoid a repeat of the events observed earlier this year.

According to The Washington Post, the Common Application had processed approximately 1.46 million applications as of December 1, an increase of 19 percent from last year's figures. Although the increased volume could spell trouble for the beleaguered application, officials remain confident that the problems reported in October will have a minimal impact in January.

"We are feeling good about how things are going," Scott Anderson, senior director for policy for the Common App, told the news source. "There will be users who have questions or need assistance. We're ready to address those." - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
