The Common Application is Live for 2019-2020!

On August 1st, the Common Application opened for rising seniors. Students can apply to nearly 900 colleges on the platform. While it is a fairly easy platform to navigate, there is a helpful guide for first year applicants filed with tips and best practices.

It's a lot of work to create a college list, work on applications and write essays. It may be helpful to look at applying to college in the same way you would if you were taking a class. Set aside a block of time each day, or several times a week, to devote to completing applications and working on essays. Summer is a great time to get a jump on this before the school year gets underway!
