Counting Down to the Common Application Deadline
The highly selective college application season for the Class of 2009 ended with a New Year’s Eve party at commonapp.org. So many students were aiming to meet January 1st application deadlines that the Common App website experienced slow-downs on December 30th and 31st, sending students and parents into near-panic. There will always be procrastinators, especially among high school students! I wonder how the New Year's Day party compared to the New Year's Eve party.
