You would think the hardest part about completing a college application is scoring well on standardized tests, getting great letters of recommendation or writing a killer essay. But for many students, that's not the case. Instead, they've been experiencing annoying bugs and glitches while trying to submit an application online.

Common Application is a universally accepted college application that more than 500 colleges and universities use for the application process. However, this system has been giving many applicants serious problems. The application reportedly crashed, logged applicants out expectantly, made it impossible for them to upload documents and even deleted some of their work.

"It was really frustrating," one applicant told NBC News. "It's just really confusing. Since it's a really widely used program, I don't understand why it's so hard to use."

As a result of these technical difficulties, numerous schools had to push back their application deadlines.
