Navigating the Common App submission - Help!

Hey guys, feeling a bit lost here. I think I've got everything ready for my applications, but can anyone walk me through the process of how to actually submit an application on the Common App? Like, I'm paranoid about missing a step or doing something wrong last minute. Thanks!

Hey there! No need to worry, submitting your application on the Common App is straightforward once you've completed all the sections. Make sure every section is filled out – that includes your Profile, Family, Education, Testing, Activities, and Writing.

Each college may require different supplemental essays or questions, so double-check each school's section under 'My Colleges.' Once you're certain everything is answered and your essays are uploaded, go to the 'Review and Submit' section for each college. The Common App will alert you if anything is missing. When ready, just hit the 'Submit' button.

Remember, you'll need to pay an application fee for each college, though fee waivers are available if you're eligible. After submission, you'll get a confirmation email for each application – save these for your records! Lastly, monitor your email and Common App portal for any follow-ups or additional requests from colleges. You’ve got this!
