Little Yellow Square for Supplement!

Common Application issue...

son submitted all his applications today for the Amherst supplement it still has a little yellow square which means something is not complete. I have looked at it ten ways from sunday and the only thing I can think of is it needs to be recognized in some way by the school. It says it has been sent, but Amherst is the only school that didn't give him a green triangle.

Who'd have thought it would all come down to colorful geometry? Has this happened to anyone else?

    I think this is a common issue. I remember it being discussed here on CC around EA/ED deadlines. I think somewhere on CommonApp it says not to really trust the shapes.

    If you definitely submitted it, I really wouldn't worry about it! (Some people's even go from triangle back to square, which is apparently meaningless)
