Daily Counselor Update

November 15, 2013

Updates Going ForwardReaders of these messages know that we started each one with a promise to continue the daily communication as long as we had news to share. Based on your recent feedback and the advice of the counselors on our Outreach Advisory Committee, we will be scaling back these communications to twice weekly. Beginning next week, you'll find updates in your inbox each Tuesday and Friday morning. As always, we will continue to share news and advice on a regular basis through Facebook and Twitter.
 
Maintenance Reminder. The Help Center will undergo a planned maintenance outage from 9PM ET Saturday 11/16 until 3AM ET Sunday 11/17. During that time, visitors to the Applicant and Recommender Help Centers will see a web page instructing them to contact us by email. Despite the outage, the support team will be staffed 24/7 as normal and will be responding to all inquiries.
 
Deadline Reminder. Since November 15 marks another significant deadline, we would like to remind you and your students that deadline is 11:59 PM applicant's local time.
