Parents' marital status

<p>My parents are separated and live in different homes. However, they are in the process of getting a divorce. The divorce should be finalized around November/December.
So should I put separated or divorced?</p>

<p>separated, but if you don't submit the common app until November/December, you could put divorced. It really doesn't matter.</p>

<p>I think divorced (IF they will for sure be divorced by nov/dec). Who knows when the adcoms will look at your app, it will probably be after this time.. especially since most deadlines are after.</p>
