Common Application vs. College or University specific Application
When it comes time to apply to colleges, there are a number of factors to consider. Once you’ve made your decision on which colleges to go after, it is important to determine which application is best for you. Students may often find it quite convenient to use the Common Application (Common App) as opposed to individual college specific applications. There is no specific advantage or disadvantage over using either application in terms of one’s admission chances.
The Common App
The Common app is accepted by a number of colleges and universities across the United States.
It allows for a single application to be used by numerous colleges that you will be applying to. Simply put, this means you don’t have to fill out numerous applications.
