Hey, high school seniors! The Common Application is now available, so get started on your applications! Not sure where to start? Take a look at this video for a full description of how to use the Common Application.
In the video, you will be able to find directions on how to keep track of your application progress, find specific requirements for each school, and learn how to research colleges that will be a good fit for you and add them to the list of schools you want to apply to.
Insider’s Experience: Make sure to check if any prospective colleges require additional writing supplements specific to that school. (That was a scary one for me when I thought I was ready to submit my application, and discovered more essay prompts deep into the application. One hour to write 650 words of the best essay ever. NOT FUN!)
If you are confused at any point while completing the Common Application, follow the instructions in the video to access 24-hour assistance.
Don’t wait to start the application process! Prevent procrastination by getting informed and starting your application today.
