At Carleton College in Northfield, the admissions office is still waiting for the applications to start flowing. But Rod Oto, the associate dean of admissions, said there have been some encouraging signs in the past few days. “We’re very close to breaking through,” he said. “I think people need to be patient.”
Mary Hill, director of college counseling at St. Paul Academy and Summit School, agrees. She noted that the Common App has been growing in popularity, and that’s one reason it rolled out the new design: to handle more applications.
“It’s been bumpier than we would have hoped,” said Hill, who spent nine years on the board of directors of the Common App. “But I have total faith that it’s going to work.”
