Princeton Common App – do they take it?

Okay folks, I'm aiming high and looking at Princeton. That application's going to take everything I've got, so I need to know – does Princeton use the Common App, or is it another set of hoops to jump through with a separate app form?

Princeton University does indeed accept the Common Application. The Common App is designed to streamline the college application process by allowing you to fill out one application for multiple schools. You'll find that Princeton, like many other Ivy League schools, also has a supplement section that you must complete. This typically includes additional essays and short answer questions specific to the university. You will need to give these supplemental questions as much attention as the main Common App essay. The Princeton supplement is a critical part of their review, as it helps them to get a better feel for you as an individual beyond just grades and test scores. Be sure to follow all application instructions carefully and adhere to the deadlines. Best of luck with your Princeton application, it's a competitive school but preparing a strong application is the first step!
