The Common Application was initially created to make students' lives easier, but this year, it seems like it has only been adding to their headaches.
Well, perhaps not the application itself, but certainly the website where students have been trying to upload - and manage - their essays, resumes, and letters of recommendation. Instead of being able to streamline the application process, students have run into all sorts of technical difficulties on the website, according to a report on CBS.
As a result, many schools - including Georgia Tech - have extended their deadlines. If you are having issues with your profile on the Common Application website, make sure you check the specific school websites as well to see if you have extra time to work out any glitches.
