Common App website is glitching — anyone else experiencing this?

Super stressed out because the Common App site keeps crashing for me. Is anyone else facing this issue right now or it’s just my bad luck? How do you even deal with this during application season?

Hey there, it's definitely nerve-wracking when technology doesn't cooperate at such a crucial time. Rest assured, you're not alone in experiencing technical difficulties from time to time with the Common App. These hiccups can be due to a variety of factors, such as high traffic on the site, especially close to major deadlines. It's certainly not just your bad luck.

Here's a little tip: make sure you are regularly saving your application progress to avoid losing any important work. If you continue to have trouble, try clearing your browser's cache or switch to a different browser. If the problem persists, the Common App Help Center is a useful resource, and you can report any ongoing issues directly to them.

Deep breaths! These issues often get resolved pretty quickly. Remember to take breaks and manage your stress – staying calm will help you think more clearly and troubleshoot any issues. Keep up the determination, you've got this!
