Now high school students have a reason to rejoice as much as we are: The Harvard Admissions offices announced that due to the impending storm and possible power outages, it has granted students applying under the early action program an extension for submitting their admissions materials. The announcement, posted on the admissions website, states that the office is always flexible in accepting applications late due to extenuating circumstances, whether it be extreme weather or personal issues.

So seniors, while it’s storming outside, hunker down and read over that Common Application essay one more time. And hey, without internet access there shouldn’t be any distractions!
