When is the final deadline for Middlebury (using the Common App)?

<p>I read somewhere that it was Dec 15... but I had always thought it was Jan 1. Does anyone know?</p>

<p>from what i understand (though i may be wrong), their website says the middlebury pre-application (common app supplement) is due dec 15 while the actual common app itself is due jan 1</p>

<p>Okay, that's what I thought.</p>

<p>I'm confused, but from what I can tell from the website FAQs (<a href="http://www.middlebury.edu/admissions/applying/faq/)%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.middlebury.edu/admissions/applying/faq/)&lt;/a>, you have to fill out basically your name and send in the check by December 15th, and then the supplemental essay and graded essay can be submitted with the common app on January 1st.</p>

<p>that is so confusing. why they gotsta be like that?</p>


<p>If I hadn't looked at this post I would have missed the deadline.</p>

<p>well, the pre application thing is fairly easy. I just got an error when submitted my credit card info ...</p>

<p>When they say due by December 15th, do they mean as soon as December 15th hits, then you can't send the pre-application in anymore?</p>

<p>Or does it mean more like, by the end of the day on December 15th?</p>

<p>You just have to send it on December 15th, not by. Be careful of time zones, though. They may accept it later from other time zones, but I would advise against risking it. You should send it on December 15th by midnight EST.</p>

<p>I am sure it is Jan 1st.</p>

<p>so Midd does not require any additional essays? This Pre-Application IS the Supplement?</p>

<p>Midd's additional essay question is mentioned in the pre-app. It's about community.</p>

<p>Apply</a> Online</p>

<p>Preapplication Essay Question: Middlebury values a sense of place and community in all forms. Please tell us about where you have grown up. How has it influenced you and your vision about the kind of college community you would like to join next year?</p>

<p>You have to mail it in, it cannot be submitted online. Must be mailed in by Jan. 1st.</p>


<p>you saved me.. I missed that before</p>

<p>how long should the essay be?</p>

<p>I've written nearly 800 words, is that too much? I don't see any specifications on the web site.</p>

<p>I'd trim it, if I were you. I was told by my college counselors to try to avoid going too far over one page.</p>

<p>Mine was 481 words.</p>

<p>**** I sent my preapp in today.. Whoops. We'll see what happens?</p>

<p>GAH this is so confusing... Also I wish they would give a word-limit on the supplemental essay...</p>
