For many high school seniors, the massive storm that struck the East Coast on Monday not only raised the possibility of days without transportation, classes or electrical power; it also threatened to wreak havoc with their college applications. The reason for students’ fears: Thursday marks a key annual deadline for many colleges to accept early applications. Authorities in northeast and mid-Atlantic states expect millions of people to be without power this week in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, making it extremely difficult for some students to meet the Nov. 1 target without the use of computers or Internet access.As a result, several colleges announced Monday that they would push back their deadlines.
