I just hit 'submit' on my college applications. - Now what?
Double check to make sure your application was indeed submitted by following the links below:
If you submitted through the Coalition
If you submitted through the Common App
Within a couple days, you should receive an email from each college to which you applied acknowledging receipt of your application and providing directions for setting up an application portal.
Set up the portal as soon as you get the email and check on the portal to see if there are any of your application components missing. Keep this portal login information handy as it is where many schools post their application decisions.
