When does the Common App typically open each year?

Just trying to plan out my summer before senior year and I want to make sure I start my applications early. Anyone know when the Common App usually becomes available? Want to hit the ground running!

Hello there! It's fantastic that you're planning ahead for your applications. The Common Application typically opens for the new admissions cycle on August 1st each year. Starting on this date, you'll be able to fill out your application, including the personal essay and any supplemental essays required by your chosen colleges. To make the most of your summer, consider brainstorming essay topics, gathering your information, and maybe even putting together a resume beforehand. That way, when August 1st rolls around, you can dive right into the application itself! Remember, while it's great to start early, ensure you take the time to review and perfect your application before submitting. Good luck!
