Students Applying for College Experiencing Website Glitches

Posted:

LEWES, Del.- Students across the country are experiencing technical issues with "The Common App," a website designed to streamline the college application process.

In Sussex County, students at Cape Henlopen High School say they're having difficulty uploading documents and formatting their college essays.

"It's frustrating," said Romy Stancofski, a senior who has Georgetown University at the top of her list. "I tried [applying to] Johns Hopkins, but got too scared because [my college essay] got all messed up so I decided to not do it at all."

In an e-mail sent out by the Common App Board of Directors, the organization is working to resolve the issues.

"For many users, the new Common Application has not been a reliable service," said the company in the e-mail.

The website relaunched with a new design and interface on August 1, the same time the problems began occurring.
