New Schools Added To The Common Application - What Does It Mean For You?

Like Heinz Vinegar, the Common App will now be more powerful than you ever could have imagined.

Like Heinz Vinegar, the Common App will now be more powerful than you ever could have imagined.

The Common App will add at least twenty-five schools this coming year, enticing students to apply to even more schools than they might have in years past. As we've said before, there's very little downside to applying to a large number of schools, and whatever hangups you might have (cost, inconvenience) should be outweighed by the long-term benefits of landing a spot at a reach school (successful friends, higher income potential).

So there are more schools on the Common App. Problem solved, right? Not quite. One of the big misconceptions about the Common App is that adding schools to your list is a click-and-you're-done situation if they're all on the Common App. But the large majority of these 25 new schools will ask for supplemental essays, so having these schools on your list might mean fewer applications, but won't necessarily cut down the number of essays you're required to write. That's where CEO comes in. We can streamline that process instantly, automatically, and inexpensively.

What's more, starting next week and going throughout the fall, CEO will be updating its database of essay requirements to keep them as current as possible. And with our new email notification system, we'll be able to alert you as soon as the requirements are made available so you can start early and save yourself the stress.

The new additions to the Common App might mean fewer applications, but with CEO, it'll mean fewer apps and fewer essays. If you're a rising senior, check out the discounts we have available. They won't be there after July first!
