Say It Isn’t So: CA4 will not release all Writing Supplements on August 1
The Common Application committed to releasing all Writing Supplements on August 1. They wanted to make it easier for students and to control the process. Now they are taking a step back. See what they wrote today:
On August 1, CA4 will launch and officially become the 2013-14 Common Application. It’s hard to overstate the magnitude of change we’re implementing for our 517 member colleges. To make sure their individual Questions and Writing Supplements work as they should, we’re providing additional testing time for any college that needs it. To be clear, students will be able to access and work through every page of every screen within the Common App itself. College pages that are still in testing will display a message requesting students to check back later. Thank you in advance for your patience as we help our member colleges to put the finishing touches on their good work.
All College Application Essays will update all Writing Supplements as they come out. We will be going into a CA4 cave on Thursday and updating for the next few days. You will know a college is updated if the essay says 2013-2014 on the top. Older ones will say 2012-2013. We will also update the ones we update starting the 1st on this site.
Please spread the word.
