How many colleges can you apply to via the Common App?

Trying to map out my college application journey. Just curious – how many schools does the Common App allow you to apply to? Is there a limit, or can I add as many as I like?

Hello there! Great to hear that you're being proactive about your college application process. The Common Application allows students to apply to up to 20 colleges. While that gives you plenty of options, it’s important to consider carefully which schools you really want to apply to and ensure that you're able to dedicate enough time to each application to make it shine. Remember, application fees can add up and it’s about finding the right fit, not just applying widely. If you're looking at several schools, make sure to prioritize your list to manage them effectively. A well-thought-out selection of schools can often be more strategic than a larger number. Good luck with your applications!
