Google drive

Hi there,

If I have to upload a document via google drive on my commonapp, what access would commonapp have to my documents. Because, google drive said commonapp would have access to all my docs, I'm wondering if it's my entire drive or just what I upload.

The Common App has access to all your files, but you select what you want to be put into your application (what you upload) and that is what colleges will end up seeing. I'm not sure if your school uses Schoology right now or an equivalent, but it's like that. The program connects and there is access to all your files, but you choose what is uploaded and that is what your teachers will see.
