Is it okay to use both the Common App and Coalition App when applying to colleges?

Hey guys, I’ve got a bunch of schools I’m interested in and some use the Common App while others are on the Coalition App. Is it frowned upon or a bad idea to use both platforms to apply to different schools? Don't want to mess anything up.

Absolutely, it's completely fine to use both the Common App and Coalition App when applying to colleges. Each platform is respected and widely used, and colleges don't have a preference for which one you use. They understand that different schools may be on different platforms. Many students apply through multiple application systems to maximize their options. Make sure to keep track of the different deadlines and requirements for each application, as they can vary. For example, if a college on your list accepts both applications, make sure you only submit through one platform to avoid any confusion. Best of luck with your applications!
