How to Apply to College: Step 3 - The Common Application
Now that you know how to find your passions and choose which colleges you will apply to, it's time to start looking at the actual application.
In this video I provide an overview of the Common Application. For all you juniors out there, now is a good time to read the entire application so you know what to expect when you fill it out. For sophomores and freshman, take a little time to look it over. It's important to note that there are twelve spaces in the Extracurricular Activities and Work Experience section at your disposal. If you want to be a competitive applicant, it's best to be able to fill in all twelve spaces. So think about what you are doing now and how you can maximize your chance of getting into your dream school.
Originally, I was going to have a section in the video about when to start filling out the app and bugs, errors, and ways to work the system, but the video was too long. So I'll probably publish an "Extra" with that footage.
