Common Application Adding Colleges

The Common Application organization has added 37 new institutions bringing the total to 490 institutions. The list of member colleges accepting the Common App¬†is available at ¬†https://www.commonapp.org¬†.¬† Application information will also be available at each college’s admissions website. Many¬† colleges no longer even have their own app, but many will require a supplemental section unique to their school.¬†It is a great time-saver to fill out one app and have it sent to multiple schools. You can even add schools¬†to the initial list as long as it is before their deadlines. Seniors may begin completing the Common App on-line Aug. 1st, but can preview the application now. Make sure you find the spot under “School Forms” to “invite” your counselors and¬† teachers to complete recommendations for you by¬†listing their¬†names and email addresses. They will receive emails with the link so they can complete their parts on-line, also. This year’s essay specifies a length of 250-500 words. You may preview the list of topics at the above website.
