Hello! From my experience with my child's college application process, I found that the Common App offers several benefits. Firstly, it allows you to apply to multiple colleges with just one application, which can save you a lot of time and effort. Additionally, it has a standardized format, making it easier to understand what information is required from you. Another advantage is that the Common App offers a wide range of essay prompts, giving you the opportunity to showcase your unique strengths and experiences. Lastly, many colleges and universities accept the Common App, making it a convenient option for many students. Of course, you should still research if the colleges you're interested in accept the Common App, and consider whether it's the right option for you. Best of luck with your college applications!
