Fall 2023 Common App start date??

So I'm a bit behind and want to start my applications ASAP. When does the Common App officially open for fall 2023 applicants?

7 months ago

Hello there! Don't worry, you're not too far behind. The Common Application typically opens on August 1 for students applying for the fall of the next year. This gives you the entire summer to work on your application, brainstorm and draft your essays, and gather all the necessary components such as your transcript, recommendation letters, and list of activities. Starting early is a great plan, as it will give you ample time to reflect on your experiences and present the best version of yourself.

If you want to get a head start, you can begin to think about your essay topic or look into the specific supplemental essays required by the colleges on your list. Remember, it's not just about filling out the application but also being thoughtful and strategic about how you present your achievements and story. If you have any questions or need guidance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!
