Good Start

Thank you for FINALLY making an app for the Common App. This literally helps a lot of us out who are doing this on the go. Obviously, the Common App is something millions of students already use for their college applications, so this review won’t really be geared toward the platform in general, but more towards the actual app performance. Now, this app is just starting out but I do believe there are some issues that need to be resolved before I can give this a higher rating. I shouldn’t have to login every time I leave the app to switch to another one. This is my phone after all, other folks aren’t going to be accessing it. At the very least, keep us logged in until an hour of inactivity has been reached, not when I go into Google Docs for a moment. Also, are there ways to increase the size/shape of the text boxes so that you can read all of the words you have written at once? The full screen button doesn’t work. Thanks.

Do not use Common App

I submitted my application the 8th, it’s now the 17th. The school I submitted to is saying they should have it by now and they don’t. The customer service team on live chat at common app keeps telling me different things and keep assuring me it’s been sent to the school when it hasn’t. Common App customer service doesn’t seem to want to help figure this out except say talk to the school which I did. Apply to the school directly if you can and skip Common App.

Update: After battling with my application process and despite Common App customer service telling me multiple times that my application was submitted to the school and they have access to it and should be able to download it, Lo and Behold, my school didn’t have access to it. My school right out said “Common App has not released their applications to us for download”. Week after week went by and Common app finally released the applications. This is been the biggest headache of my life, Common App customer service needs to quit lying to applicants saying “It’s available for download” when it wasn’t and it was Common App holding things up. I’m trying to plan out my education here and they are making a headache of it.

common APP lol

I’m surprised this hasn’t happened earlier but I’m happy that people can use this as an app now instead of a website. The functions are all the same, but I WOULD like to say that having this app has started to add onto my application stress. My phone is my break and escape from all of my college and school stress but seeing this app has added to my anxiety. You get what you’re looking for in this app, but beware of college stress fellow applicants!
