Yesterday, the Common Application became available on line! Accepted by the vast majority of colleges in the U.S., the common application has, for many students, streamlined the application process. However, this is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Many colleges will also ask for supplemental materials to be completed. these supplements can ask for as little additional information as a few pieces of data, or can be as involved as asking the applicant how they plan to contribute the richness of the diversity on campus. The Common Application website is also a useful tool for organizing the college process. It keeps track of all the schools the student is applying to, lists the application due dates, provides links to supplements, and keeps track of which applications are complete and which are still in progress.
We strongly enourage all of our clients who are rising seniors to strive to complete the Common Application before the start of the school year so that, come September, they can focus on their academic work, sports, SATS, and final college visits and interviews.
