Can I apply to multiple colleges through the Common App?

Hi all, I'm a high school junior, and I've heard about the Common App as a way to apply to multiple colleges. Can anyone explain how the Common App works and if it's a good option for applying to colleges? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello! The Common App is indeed a great option for applying to multiple colleges. It's an online application platform that allows you to fill out one application and submit it to multiple colleges, saving you time and effort. The Common App is accepted by over 900 colleges and universities in the U.S., so there's a good chance that at least some of the schools you're interested in will be on their list. You'll need to write a personal essay, provide your high school transcript, and request letters of recommendation from your teachers and counselors. Some colleges may also require supplemental essays or materials, so be sure to check each school's requirements. My child used the Common App when applying to colleges, and it made the whole process much smoother. Give it a try, and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions. Good luck!
