If you submitted you application on Common App, but then added another rec will it go

If you submitted an application by Common App to a college and the college downloaded my application, but then I had another recommendation submitted to Common App. Will Common App send this new rec to the school? I looked at CC and on Common App and the answer was not clear. Below is what Common App said , but the recommendation was not already sent to another school, its entirely new. That is why I am confused.

Any idea how this works? Will the new rec go to colleges that already downloaded my application?


Can I still assign recommenders after submitting my application?

Yes! You may still assign a recommender to your colleges after you submit your application.

To do this, just follow these steps.

1. Click the My Colleges tab

2. Click the name of the desired school

3. Click the Recommenders and FERPA section

4. Scroll down and then assign your new recommender

If the recommender has already submitted their recommendation to another school, it will be sent immediately to the college that you just assigned them to.

    Yes. My daughter submitted her app to a college in early Oct. The college downloaded the app, writing supplement and the one submitted rec immediately. Her second rec was completed 2 weeks or so later and the college downloaded the second rec after it was submitted. All show up in the portal as complete. If relevant, everything was done before the EA deadline, so not sure what happens if you're past the deadline.
