Common Application: Inside the Numbers
Of course, the numbers don't tell the whole story. While the folks at Common App pat themselves on the back, touting the many successes of this online college portal, for CA4, as the 2013-14 version was called, failure may have actually been their thing.

Failure to launch. Failure to load. Failure to upload Supplements. Failure to permit log on. Failure to paginate. Failure to produce the required signature page. Failure to capture the essay. Failure to acknowledge the error of their ways. Failure to fix. Whoa! We need an infographic here...

So, as we say farewell (or is it good riddance) to the missteps and mishaps of the Common App of 2013-14, we look forward, with more than a little trepidation, to what Common App 2014-15 will bring us, this when it goes "live" on August 1.

Best of luck to the Class of 2018. And welcome to the crazy world of college applications and admissions, Class of 2019!
