Is it necessary to write common app essay?Answered
12th grade pass
Yes, it is necessary. Most of the colleges are using Common App Application. So please write it very carefully.
Niki is true to an extent it just differs by school, for example, Kansas St doesn't accept essays while Harvard requires them and some schools recommend them such as Univ Ariz. So when you designate a school as interested in your profile it should say if its recommended/optional required or not accepted.
Please comment if you need clarification! I'd be happy to help.
If it shows up in the collegevine essay guide on collegevine for the college then yes. If It's not you might be able to use it for scholarships.
