An uncommon app with the Common App

Ah, the common application. This is a relatively old experiment by a bunch, over 300 rather, of US colleges and universities to make the application process a whole lot easier for all the applicants. Most of you will be applying to more than just one school, so instead of having to fill out twelve different applications that pretty much ask for the same things, someone finally had the brilliant idea to put together the Common App.

But, do not be fooled. The Common App, while it may somewhat decrease the amount of time you will spend on applying, is not a miracle-worker. Most, if not all, top schools will have a supplement for you to complete as well. Make sure you’re aware of what each school wants you to do logistically; Harvard for example wants you to send in the Common App with your supplement whereas another school might not care if you submit the supplement weeks after.
