Making Applying to College Easier
The Common Application is a standardized undergraduate college application form that is accepted at more than 500 accredited, independent colleges and universities nationwide. You may access the application by going to http://www.commonapp.org
The Common Application looks similar to most college applications, with all the usual fields for name, address, school and test data, as well as questions about your work experience and volunteer activities. For the personal essay, you may choose one of four questions, or propose a question of your own.
