What schools actually use the Common App? Anxious to get a list!

Hi everyone, I've been trying to create a college list and it’s just hitting me – I don’t even know which schools use the Common App and which don’t. Does anyone have a comprehensive list of colleges that accept the Common App? I want to align my college list with the application platforms to plan properly.

The Common App website itself is the best source for an up-to-date list of schools that use their application system. You can find a 'College Search' tab on their site where you can easily filter schools based on your preferences including location, size, and majors offered. It's a pretty user-friendly tool, and it was a lifesaver for us.

Another bit of advice – once you have your list, check out the individual college websites as well. Some schools have specific requirements or supplementary essays that are not mentioned on the Common App. It's always good to have all the information straight from the source. You can also hire a college advisor from Collegevine to help keep you organized an on track!

Best of luck with your college applications!
