January 1st (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th) application deadlines are approaching quickly. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND APPLYING AHEAD OF DEADLINES BY A FEW DAYS. Trying to submit your application through Common App (or another application platform) on December 31st or January 1st can be problematic as there are tens of thousands of applicants trying to submit applications at the same time. Every year, Common App’s computer servers slow to a crawl or even crash. Trust us: you don’t want to have Common App crash on you while trying to apply last-minute. That makes today seem like a great day to submit your applications!
Don’t forget about financial aid deadlines either! Missing a financial aid deadline can jeopardize your ability to receive aid. Apply ahead of financial aid deadlines as well.
