Common App Question

I've searched the Common App website but couldn't find an answer.

I'm applying to Cornell, Duke, Northwestern via Common App. Since Cornell & Northwestern's deadline is earlier, I'll be submitting the application to them first.

How does the submission work?

A) Do I have a choice to send to each individual school or does it send to all the schools in one fell swoop?

B) After I have submitted my Common Application to Cornell & Northwestern, can I still edit it before my submission to Duke? Or, is it the case where after I submit, I cannot edit it for another school?

C) Some have advised attaching "brag sheets"/resumes to your application. Is this advisable? If so, how do I include in my Common Application?

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    A. Yes, you can submit them individually.
    B. You cannot change that version of the Common App once it is sent. But, you can create an alternate version. Just follow the instructions on the CA website how to create an alternate version to send to Duke. It's really pretty easy. Just be sure to re-upload any thing you originally uploaded to your original app if you intend to use it on the new version. Or...you can upload a different document or essay....it's your choice what goes into the new version. For the record, you can create multiple versions of the CA. So far, my daughter has 5 different versions!
    C. Sure, why not send your resume or brag sheet....just upload it to the "Additional Info" section of the Writing Samples page. That's what my daughter did.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!
