Common App - Writing Requirements Resource

With the first wave of November early decision, early action & priority application due dates right around the corner, college applicants are working overtime to complete their applications, personal statements and supplemental essays.

Confirming if the colleges on their list required any additional essays, students normally turn to the Application Solution Center on Common App. Today, that resource has been upgraded with a search feature to make finding that answer even easier.

This feature will tell students which required and optional long-answer questions the college or university asks for, whether any of these schools request that a document be uploaded, where to find these school-specific questions, and what the word count is for each prompt.

All these college essays, from the 650 word personal statement to the 100 word short answer prompt, can be deal makers and/or deal breakers. They should be taken seriously by all students regardless of their academic profile.

It’s not to late to ask for help, so don’t hesitate to reach out to College Apps Made Easy. Email us at today and we’ll make sure you’re ready to submit the most competitive application possible.
