Hey,

My common application personal essay won't upload! I tried converting it into pdf, txt. I tried logging out and back in again. I even enabled my popup blocker. But it won't upload! Any help? My deadline is approaching FAST!

First, try using another browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. If this doesn't work, then try using another computer in your household. I had a problem like this and I waited an hour, and then I was able to upload my essay, so it could just be a server problem that they are experiencing. The worst case scenario is that you have to contact your colleges and explain your late application to them...

I just finished all my supplements and revisions on my common app essay...and none of them can upload. Its in the correct format. Its not above the size limit. ...... it keeps saying "Error uploading the file. Please try again"

By the way, If anyone finds a way to fix this or is having the same problem please post!

So what do we do?Because I don't want to contact the universities and tell them about this.It would look bad on me,I should have uploaded my essays earlier.
Besides,if the deadline passes, I can't submit my app online,right?

Its weird cuz i uploaded fine an older version of my essay like earlier on today. But now i try uploading my revised and it doesn't work at all....I think we should try like common app tech support first or something.

are most of your deadlines on 1/2 or 1/1?
if they are on 1/2 then i guess we can wait till tmr?
or deadline on 1/2 actually means before 1/1 midnite D :

no deadline of 1/1 means 1/1 11:59pm EST
and so 1/2 means 2nd of januaray 11:59 pm EST

i think this is shown somewhere in the common apps site.

i uploaded my supplement like 6 hrs ago

Guys the same thing happened to me. Me and tech support are tight after all the tickets I've sent 'em. Try the following:

>DISable your popup blocker. It shouldn't be enabled
>Never click "back" to get to the common app page to load the essay
>Close your browser (i use firefox), reboot your computer, then try again
>Make sure the files are under 500kb
>If all this hasn't worked, tell tech support, and they'll have you send them the files in an email, with info on which college you're sending it to, what essay choice topic it is, your username, what version of your app it's going on, and whatever else they ask for, and they'll upload it for you

Stop coming down on tech support. They're working hard around the clock for everyone who was too lazy to get started on apps earlier.
