Help Needed with Common App Application Preview

Hi folks! Quick question. I'm trying to get a full view of my application before I submit it, and I've heard there's a way to enable a preview in the Common App. Can anyone walk me through how to do this? Would really appreciate it so I can double-check everything's perfect.

Hey there! Absolutely, it can be quite beneficial to preview your Common App before sending it off. Once you've completed all the sections of your application, you can simply click on the 'Review & Submit' section for any college on your list. At this stage, a 'Preview' button should appear at the top or bottom of the page. Clicking on this will generate a PDF version of your application, which shows exactly how colleges will see it once submitted. It’s a great opportunity to check for any formatting issues or typos, and make sure that all your information is presented just how you want it. Pro tip: show the PDF to a family member, teacher, or counselor to get another set of eyes to catch any mistakes. If you spot any mistakes, you can always go back to the relevant section to edit them before you do your final submission. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your applications!
