Would you like Paper or Plastic?

<p>Basically, what are the advantages/disadvantages when it comes to filling out the common app online or by paper?</p>

<p>I don't claim to be any kind of expert but I believe most schools prefer online applications. One school DS will be applying to told us they don't want anything on paper--no teacher recs, transcripts, anything.</p>

<p>In my opinion you either send the school EVERYTHING on paper of EVERYTHING by computer. I would do computer because its so easy to keep track of anything and you never have to worry about items getting lost in the mail or even mailing cost for teachers!</p>

<p>But aren't teacher recs on paper? So wouldn't it make sense to go ALL Paper</p>

<p>I am pretty sure you can now get teachers rec online.</p>
