Seniors, if you are applying to 4 year colleges, chances are high that one of the colleges will utilize the Common Application, or "Common App" for your application.
What is Common App?
It's awesome because it saves you a lot of time by allowing you to answer questions once that are then transferred to multiple applications.
But, it can be a bit confusing to use at first.
Therefore, since you're on summer vacation, now is the perfect time to start learning about Common App. The tutorial below will walk you through the basics of how the system works.
*KEEP IN MIND* The application rolls over each year in July. So right now, we recommend just getting to know how Common App works - but don't go answering every question because a lot of that info won't save during the roll-over.
Things that will save during the roll-over:
Things that will NOT save during the roll-over: (AKA DON'T DO THESE UNTIL AUGUST!)
* Answers to college-specific questions
* Recommender invitations
* Forms submitted by recommenders
* Your Release Authorization and FERPA selection
* Responses to questions that have been changed or removed
