The Common Application

*This is an archived post. To read our updated information about the CA4, please go to our section on Admission FAQ's!

The Common Application now offers a total of 463 colleges and universities to which you can apply for the 2011-2012 admissions season.  That’s 49 more schools than last year!  The Common Application Online launches officially on August 1. 

Go to https://www.commonapp.org/CommonApp/News.aspx#47 for more information.

One important change on this year’s Common Application is the word limit on the personal statement:  It is no longer open-ended.  The essay must be 250 to 500 words!  The topics have not changed.
