Chalk Talk: The Common Application
Most students these days apply to several colleges, which means they have to fill out several applications, which can take a lot of time and effort. The Common Application is an attempt to solve this problem by providing one application that can be sent to multiple colleges. There are many benefits to this, such as the ease it provides; the Common App. tracks deadlines, application status, and required additional materials, all in one place, which is a help to students. The Common App. requires one essay, with one or two possible additional short essays. Some colleges will require additional essays, called Supplements, which can add up to a lot of work applicants. The Common App. is longer than many applications available on colleges’ websites, but the additional information given by the Common App. is beneficial for students. And some colleges have begun to use the Common App. exclusively. Some colleges will waive their application fee if students use the college’s online application, which can be a real help, since application fees can become prohibitive. So, though there are many benefits to the Common App., there are also drawbacks.
