Regular Decision Deadlines Extended

Delayed-Stamp

Once again the new Common App could not handle the rush of students trying to submit applications. The first problems showed up during the early application deadlines and now AGAIN with regular decision deadlines. On Jan. 1 as midnight approached, the Common App slowed and finally crashed. To alleviate the anxiety of submitting seniors, colleges have AGAIN extended deadlines.  Check the list of extensions below:
