University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and More 2012-2013 Updates

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill was among dozens of schools updated today as Common App supplements continue to be released by schools. UNC-Chapel Hill which has 1 required supplemental essay and 5 special applicant and program-specific questions, had new options for its required question this year. While we liked all of the options, we'd have to go with the first topic:

"You just put a message in a bottle and threw the bottle out to sea. What is the message?"

The third option was tempting as well: "What is your comfort food and why?"

Not your typical college essay topics.

Note About Occidental College

Members who have selected Occidental College may notice that we recently changed the ordering of this school's questions in our database. The "Special Applicant" question is now listed last (as opposed to first), which means the other questions are all now renumbered. Please review your account as needed.

Cornell College Character Counts on Common App Supplement Are Incorrect

Colleges are made up of people like the rest of us, so we come across our fair share of errors when going through college applications. As a latest find, please note that the character counts on the Cornell College Common App Supplement are incorrect. Refer to the word counts as the character counts are too low, and the information is not cut off when pasted in (the character counts just become negative).
