Next year, August, 2013, the Common Application that is used by most colleges for application will change.
Here is the list of how it will be different:
- It will be online only.
- It will eliminate the “Topic of Choice” prompt.
- The 4 to 5 remaining prompts will change year to year.
- The 250 word minimum will be strictly enforced.
- If you go over the 500 word maximum, you will receive an error message.
