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.
Recommender Invitations. Misspelled or inaccurate email addresses account for nearly all unreceived recommender invitations. If you have not received an invitation from a student who has invited you, ask the student to confirm that the provided address is correct.
Recommender Tip of the Day. When you use the Common App Recommender System to submit a School Report or Teacher Evaluation on behalf of a student, that form and the accompanying letter are sent to all colleges to which the student submits a Common App. Since you cannot retrieve a form once you click submit (it's like dropping it in a mailbox), make sure you understand that anything you put in your letter--including the name of a single institution--will be seen by each and every college to which that student applies.
