Application question

<p>What happens if a college receives an applicant's recommendation letters first before it receives his application and supplements? Do they safekeep them until the application arrives and put them together? I'm kind of worried about that right now.</p>

<p>Also, is the Online Common Application an immediate submission to the college? A dumb question, but they don't take like a week to get to the college right? Just making sure.</p>

<p>Thanks.</p>

<p>I believe that they open a file on you with the first piece of information that comes in, then add to that as it comes until complete.</p>

<p>They'll keep it. But they only open a file after they get your app fee.</p>
