Can I submit my common app before the supplement?
To ensure that colleges receive both your application and Writing Supplement, you must submit your application to the college first. After it has been submitted you will be able to review and submit your Writing Supplement.
Can you submit on the day of a deadline?
Unless otherwise stated, electronic applications are due by midnight of the deadline day (not the midnight before it), and snail-mail applications (rare these days) must be postmarked by the deadline day. Frankly, most colleges will look the other way if an application is a day or even sometimes several days late.
Can I get a job with 2.0 GPA?
A: Some elite employers have policies requiring a certain GPA (usually a 3.0 or higher), and there is generally no way around that rule. To get a job with one of the gazillions of other employers in the world, a low GPA is a completely surmountable challenge. Good grades imply that you are smart, serious and motivated.
