D started her online application today and realized halfway through that the only option to apply for is fall 2012. We are aware you can apply on Sept 1 for fall of 2013. Does the drop down box change to fall of 2013 on that day or has she messed up by starting the application too early? Any help appreciated!

    Your daughter should wait until Sept 1 when the new application will be available. In the meantime, she could look at last year's application and become familiar with it. This will enable her to breeze through the application when Sept comes. My son did the same thing last year, and he was able to get the application in early, which meant that he heard back early (early November) that he was accepted.

    My son will be starting Penn State this fall. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Thanks PortMom, That is exactly what she is trying to do. She wants to be able to submit on Sept 1. She is concerned because she realized she was working on last years application but could not delete it once she realized the error. Her Mypennstate account keeps prompting her to finish the application. She didn't know if she needed to delete that account and make a new one. We are hoping it will make sense once the new application becomes available.

    The application will change to Fall 2013 on Soetember 1, I was in your same position last year as well haha. I found that applying early was a great benefit; I submitted my application on Sept 15th, and heard of my acceptance the week of Thanksgiving (they don't start reviewing applications until Nov 1 so this was pretty early) while a lot of kids from my school didn't apply until November and didn't hear back until late January.
