Common App not Downloading!!

Hi All, Well of course D waited until tonight to try to download everything into her common app, and it's taking FOREVER.

Is there any trick to getting things to run faster? Should we wait until later in the evening? We are on the west coast, so I'm wondering if once it hits midnight on the east coast things might start speeding up a bit.

Thanks for your help. Bitting my tongue while I write this for D.

    @Mimi2018 I am thinking the volume of applicants may be affecting the speed because it is so close to the Nov. 1st deadline. Your D probably is one of many trying to complete and submit. Some people can't even get it to load.

    AAGH!! Ok, so is this par for the course? I'm just wondering if there's a window at midnight-2am when the volume might slow down? And we can do it then? Or should we just wait it and and watch that circular thingy spin around all night until it loads?

    She can no longer get it to load. Holy mother of G**. Any idea how many times in the past week I told her to get the bloody thing submitted?? About a million.
