Common App submission problems already

DS' "other" recommender has been trying for 3 days to submit his letter to CA, at all hours of the day and night, using 5 different computers and 4 different browsers. He gets the message, PDF generating, and the system hangs. I searched and found some threads on this issue from October, 2013, but the only solution mentioned was changing browsers or computers. I submitted a help ticket two days ago but have heard nothing from CA.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? The alternative is to send paper letters to the early colleges, but this is inconvenient, as DS will also be making applications to a large number of colleges for RD.

    commom app is so 5 years ago!

    I do not understand why colleges do not just have on line apps on their website (many do...but all of them should)
    common app seems to be troubled and always about to be "fixed" soon.

    any school that has a non common app option on their website...I would do those first ...directly on the college website.(for peace of mind) a little extra work is not a big deal it is for your student's future!
