  1. After you meet you deadline, can you please tell me how you were able to find the phone number to call? I can't seem to find it. I actually have a question to ask them. Thanks!
  2. OK. Coming up from submarine mode..... DS submitted Common App to one school and two for Coalition! And I finished my paperwork just about 1/2 hour ago. Whew! This time he submitted before I did... Yay! Thanks everyone for your help so far!! I can't believe this was so complicated. But truly, this was a lot of work.... and stress. DD is applying next year. I'm going to have to start like in January. We are going to take a couple of days break before tackling the supplemental essays for the rest of the schools on his list. DH will work on FAFSA. Other than helping DS, what else should I be doing? My brain is mush now... Good luck to anyone still working for Nov 1 deadline!!
  3. Congrats on getting it all done! We are still trucking along...
  4. DS made a resume. Not planning to submit it on the applications since no school has asked for it, but he gave it to ppl writing his recommendations and referred to it when filling out the apps.
  5. Thanks for sharing all of your thoughts! OK, I think I am putting in too much info. And there's a bit of white space. I might try doing a column format and see what happens. RootAnn, you are right. We do have 6 different Outside providers for various reasons. If I have a grading scale on the transcript, can I remove it from my school profile?
  6. So, my school profile is now 2 pages, using 12 pt font. And I still have more to write. Will 3 pages be too long? 4 pages? Should I consider a smaller font size?
  7. Thanks for the heads up that I can only upload one document. Will have DH merge the files for me.
  8. Thank you so much! You sent me yours before, and I have it open while working on mine. =)
  9. Thanks! That's a very clear outline of what goes in a school profile.
  10. Thanks RootAnn! Whatever you may have forgotten, you still remember enough to help us. 😁 I think I need to squirrel myself for a block of hours to work on this. Right now, I'm working in short spurts, but it takes some time to reorient my brain each time I sit down in front of the computer.
  11. Wow, all of this has been very helpful, particularly the different approaches taken by the families. So how about including list of books read in the course description? Would that look ok instead of making a reading list? Also, what about for online courses? Do I write an abbreviated version of the course description on the provider's webpage?
  12. Thanks RootAnn for chiming in! DS is applying this year. I intended to start my paperwork in the summer, but life happened. So, I've finished the transcript and maybe half the course descriptions? My other kids will likely use the Common App also. So hopefully the learning curve this year will translate to better efficiency in subsequent application cycles though I cannot guarantee a high rate of retention here.
