My friend is applying for the US, and she doesn't have a credit card. Only a debit card. She has no clue how she's going to pay for her application. Any help guys ? She has a debit card if that helps. She said she tried with that but it didn't go through.

Common application has no telephone contact numbers, only a ticket system...what an organisation...

I need help fast !!! Thanks for all the replies...

You can enter a debit card as a credit card on the common app and it will take it. I know my payment via debit was accepted.

Out of nosiness, what schools is she applying to ? :p

Edit: Hmmm that it's strange that it didn't take it.
Edit 2: I would also like to say that some of the systems that have in place (like for online recommendations) is roughly as intuitive as preforming brain surgery with a live lobster instead of precision medical tools.

Maybe she used the debit wrong...I'll make her try again.

Is the fact that she's from an african nation an issue ? US sanctions and what not ? I'm clueless on this so educate me...

Your guess is as good as mine bud, I'm just a sheltered Georgia boy

My only other guess is to be careful with the stuff like the security code, easy to mess up , etc.

Yeah, she said she'll try in the morning...

And she applied to Harvard, Yale and Williams ( ****ing smartasses ) and she'll most probs get in...Yeah, but hey we got guitar right. While nerds make the money we'll have the sex, drugs and rock n' roll right? Right?

If she is applying to those Ivies you think she would be able to figure this out without having you ask a guitar forum....

In all fairness I think the Common App was designed to curtail the number of "what the hell" applications, in addition to lightening the load on the individual colleges.
