6 T H E DA S H B OA R D The Application Dashboard displays all of your colleges and the status of your work for each major admissions component: Common Application, application fee*, college Writing Supplement*, and Recommendations*. From here, you can get a quick overview of your progress, and jump directly to the work you want to complete. (* when applicable)

7 THE WRITING SECTION

8 P E R S O N A L E S S AY 1. Each college that you apply to can either require a response or leave it as an optional writing prompt for you. Once you ve added schools to your My Colleges list, navigate to the Personal Essay section in the Writing Screen to see which schools require the essay and which schools leave it as an optional writing prompt.

9 NEW ESSAY PROMPTS Here is the new line-up (with new language italicized): 1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. 2. The lessons we take from failure can be fundamental to later success. Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience? 3. Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again? 4. Describe a problem you ve solved or a problem you d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma-anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution. 5. Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

10 WRITING The essay prompt word limit is words on your selected topic You can type your answer in the box directly or cut & paste into the box You will not be able to submit your application if a required personal essay has not been completed The Additional Information section allows up to 650 words, with no limit You may use the Additional Information area in the writing section to share relevant information about yourself that is not captured elsewhere in the application

11 ASSIGNING RECOMMENDERS An applicant may still assign a recommender to schools after the recommendation or application has been submitted. As soon as a teacher submits a recommendation, it is sent to any schools to which the student has assigned the recommender. You should talk with a potential recommender before assigning them. You should complete a "brag sheet" for your recommender.

12 MORE HELPFUL TIPS Check and review your application for accuracy Do NOT procrastinate Manage deadlines Use the Common Applications' support services for help The Common App has a Training Library of videos to help you through the application process
