I submitted my common app but it says I have to wait about 2 days for the payment to process and then i can submit the writing supplement for the college im applying to. Is this normal? Thanks

    I am wondering about this too. Did you find out anything?
  • eps96eps96 Registered User Posts: 270 Junior Member
    Nope, I will most likely ask my college counselor tomorrow if nothing shows up by tomorrow. They did say two days so I'll just have to be patient for now. But if anyone has a definite answer about this that would be great as well!

    This can sometimes happen as Common App has been malfunctioning and not performing at its peak lately. If it's not resolved in a few days, try contacting common app headquarters.

    Did this happen with you too or no?

    How long did it end up taking your common app to process? I submitted mine this evening, with my college's early decision deadline being 11:59 PM tomorrow night. Thus, I do not have two days to wait to send my writing supplement. Please tell me some good news.

    Did you actually include your signature? Is there a green check mark next to Preview and Submission - Common App?

    Just try again. It will say up to 2 days, but often you can proceed within a few minutes.

    I have been waiting for almost 5 days but my payment has not been processed. Even the Universities cannot give me any more time. I've even sent a complaint to Common app but its just not working and now I can't submit my writing supplement.
