From Inside Higher Ed:
Many admissions officers at the annual meeting of the National Association for College Admission Counseling were complaining about technical glitches on the Common Application’s new back-end system, which was launched in August. Some applicants have complained of difficulties in inputting their materials, while some colleges have had difficulties pulling applicant information from the system. Sessions featuring Common Application officials had lots of angry admissions officials in attendance. Many other enrollment officials, who didn’t go to the sessions, saw the glitches as typical for major system overhauls — and not that disruptive (assuming they are fixed soon).
