I thought that all these Jan 1 deadlines, I could submit ON January 1. Like I could just wake up tomorrow morning and submit them?? But I saw a thread below that says we need to submit them tonight?

    Is the deadline 11:59 PM tonight OR 11:59 PM TOMORROW?

    Why are people saying they're worried for tonight?! AHH!

    11:59 PM ET TOMORROW FOR COMMON APPS WITH DEADLINE ON JAN 1ST

    Materials due on Jan 1st must be postmarked by Jan 1st (excluding school materials... recs/transcripts/etc...)

    wait... does this include stuff on the internet? like common app internet? does this mean i have until january first 11:59PM??
  • tapedDucktapedDuck Registered User Posts: 705 Member
    For stuff on the internet, you must click the submit button by 11:59pm ET tomorrow...

    mailed stuff you need to get to the post office to be postmarked before the post office closes tomorrow (except school stuff... as mentioned above)

    ... apparently, from some other posts, colleges allow a little leeway, but better not to take the risk

    The Yale deadline as today and I submitted today, so I'm sure. But anyway, if it says the deadline is Jan 1, then the deadline is Jan 1 11:59 PM on Eastern time. Make sure you go by Eastern time zone!

    The only college I have seen where they don't go by ET is UChicago... according to their website they're application is due when it is 11:59pm Jan 1st on Bakers Island (the last place to change date)... I should've applied, but the essays scared me away and I just got too lazy

    Caltech moved their deadline from Jan 2nd to Jan 3rd noon
