The Common App
Most college applicants consider using the Common Application. Why? If your college list is long, it can save time. With the Common App, you enter your basic information and stats into a single application that is sent to all your colleges. The Common App also centralizes all the pieces of your applications—essays, supplemental questions, recommendations, deadlines—all in one place.
