The Common Application
Learn about the seven essay prompts for The Common Application. Two new prompts were added for 2017-18, including one (Prompt 7) that allows you to write about any topic you want!
If you are applying to one or more of the college and universities that use The Common Application, you will need to write one core essay, commonly referred to as The Common App Essay. You choose one of the seven prompts and write one “personal statement” style essay that is between 250 and 650 words.
