Applying to Virginia Tech - Common App Experiences?

Hey all, I'm in the weeds with college research and Virginia Tech seems interesting. Does VT accept the Common App? Would appreciate any insights into the application process there!

8 months ago

Hello there! Indeed, Virginia Tech does accept the Common Application, which can streamline the application process for you since you can use the same platform to apply to multiple schools. When applying to VT through the Common App, make sure to carefully review their specific requirements. They usually ask for a secondary school report, a mid-year school report, and your SAT or ACT scores, although test scores have been optional in the past due to COVID-19 disruptions so you'll want to check the most current policy.

Additionally, VT requires a few short-answer questions that are unique to their application. These responses allow the admissions committee to get to know you better beyond your academic achievements. It's advisable to set aside dedicated time to thoughtfully answer these prompts, as they are an opportunity to showcase your personality and interests. If you have any particular activities or achievements that you're proud of, this is the moment to highlight them. Lastly, keep an eye on application deadlines to ensure that you submit all the required materials on time. Best of luck with your application to Virginia Tech!
