sadAppLinkWell, good job, procrastinators… you broke the UC’s application system. You broke it so badly, UCOP decided to extend the application deadline for Fall 2010 admits to December 2nd at 11:59pm. And who ever said procrastination never pays off?

From a UCOP post at the UC Newsroom site:

For the past two evenings, the University of California online application system has experienced a slowdown that has prevented some students from submitting their applications. Due to these unforeseen circumstances, we are extending the application period through 11:59 p.m. Dec. 2

“Unforseen circumstances.” Suuuure….

Anyways, for those that are still working to submit their app, UCOP will be operating a help line for applicants on Dec. 1st and 2nd from 1pm to midnight. You can reach them at (800) 914-8820 (in California) or (925) 808-2150 (outside California).

Just a friendly tip for our future slugs: you may not want to wait until 11:58pm on the 2nd to submit your application. You know, like everyone else.
