Common App submission confirmation?

Hey everyone! Kinda in a tiny panic here. How can I definitely confirm that my Common App was submitted successfully? Also, would I receive a confirmation email or something from the schools I applied to? Just making sure I haven't messed up something crucial!

Hey there! I completely understand your concern – it's important to make sure everything has been submitted correctly. To confirm that your Common App was submitted successfully, you should be able to check your dashboard on the Common App website. Each college you've applied to will be listed there, and next to it, you'll see the status of your application. Look for a 'Submitted' tag or a checkmark – those usually indicate that the college has received your application.

As for the confirmation emails, most colleges do send out an email confirming they've received your application. However, it might not be immediate and can take a few days. If you're feeling anxious, it's perfectly fine to reach out to the admissions offices of the schools you've applied to and ask for confirmation. Just provide them with your Common App ID and they'll be able to check for you. Keep an eye on your spam folder as well, just in case! I hope this helps ease your mind a bit!
