The Common Application
Daily Counselor Update

November 14, 2013

As promised, we are sending daily updates regarding system performance and support. We will continue this communication as long as there is news to share.
Student Tip of the Day #1The Testing section of the application asks, "Do you wish to self-report standardized test scores?" Students should answer Yes to this question if they wish to report any of the following scores: ACT, SAT/SAT Subject, AP, IB, TOEFL, PTE Academic, and IELTS.
Student Tip of the Day #2. Because the Activities section contains no required questions, it defaults to green check status. We encourage you to advise your students to review their application carefully before submitting to ensure that this important section is completed to their satisfaction.
Recommender Tip of the Day. You cannot edit or replace a submitted school form.  If you discover an error or need to update information, you can either submit the Optional Report or you can contact colleges directly with your corrected information.
