It says common app opens on Aug 1st for fall 2022 apps- but can we start filling earlier or have to wait till aug 1st to fill out the application?

You can definitely start early! I have, just make sure your personal info is up to date when you do submit it.

You're able to start filling it out now if you want to!

Yes, you can fill out the common app now. I know because I’ve started too. August 1 is when you can begin to submit the Common Application to colleges for early admissions.

Most schools let you apply from August 1-November 1 for early accept and/or early decisions.

Most schools have a January deadline for regular decisions.

Good luck in your applications!
