Just a quick note to let my readers know that the Common Application for the 2010-2011 application year is now open. Here is the link to the 2010-2011 Common App.
I recommend that students applying to colleges using the Common Application start working on the application at this time if you haven’t already started. You should be able to complete the biographical portion of the common application very quickly but you will want to spend some time on the essays of the common application. The more you can complete before returning for your senior year, the more pleasant your senior year will be.
