For rising seniors, this time of the year is right before everything becomes hectic, and solidifying college essays starts to become greatly important. With that being said, we will be going over the common application and the deadlines.
What is the Common App?
The application process can be extremely dreary and tiring. Applying to all of the different schools can start to become repetitive when constantly typing in the same profile, extracurriculars, and demographics. The common application, which is accepted by 900+ colleges and universities throughout the United States (and even including some international schools), makes this terrifying process a bit simpler and easier. Through this application, students can now apply to multiple schools using the same general format, saving a lot of time.
Common App Deadlines
The Fall 2022 Admission application will start on August 1st, so if you have any essays saved on your current common application, it is highly recommended to save them somewhere else. That being said, here are some other important deadlines:
Early Action: November 2021
Early Decision: November 2021
Regular Decision: January/February 2022
