Here's a list of the first colleges we've updated for the 2013-2014 application season.

  2. Georgetown University
  3. Georgia College and State University
  4. University of California-Berkeley

  15. Wesleyan College
Only a few colleges post their new applications this early. As many of you know, ALL college supplements will be available when the Common App goes live on August 1 (The Common App recently confirmed this on their Facebook page.), but that won't get in the way of College Essay Organizer delivering essay questions to you even earlier!

Tip: For some updated colleges, certain questions may not yet be confirmed for the new season (eg, program-specific questions) so you will see a "Not Yet Updated" watermark behind such questions.

Note: If you are aware of any college that has released its new application but is not yet updated in College Essay Organizer, odds are we're already working on it. Keep in mind that we are updating not just the required questions but also the many program-specific, special applicant, and scholarship questions. That said, feel free to reply to this email noting any college application you believe is now available, and we will inform you when it will be live in College Essay Organizer.

Why Do You Need College Essay Organizer?

Why do you need College Essay Organizer? Here's one big reason: It's absolutely crucial that you know all your questions in advance and see an overall essay strategy that addresses all your colleges before you begin writing. If you instead go application by application, you will likely end up writing far more essays than you need to. 

For example, if you start with the Common App personal statement without knowing any of your other colleges' supplemental questions, you may choose to write about an ethical dilemma for your personal statement, not knowing that one of your supplemental questions requires an ethical dilemma essay. What happens then is you face the issue of submitting redundant essays to that college, and that looks terrible.

Our goal is to allow you to see a bird's eye view of the college essay process so you can pace yourself and optimize your time. Students can get started for free in less than a minute. It's time you started focusing less on the tedious, time-consuming organizational aspect and get right down to the creative work that will help you get in to your top-choice colleges.
