US Application: Common App, Coalition App, UC app

The Common Application (informally known as the Common App) is an undergraduate university admission application that applicants may use to apply to more than 750 member colleges and universities in 49 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Canada, China, and many European countries. The Common App allows you to fill in all of your basic information once. This saves you time when you are applying for multiple universities. The Common App also includes seven essay topics, of which you will choose one to answer. Many universities will require additional essays, which will be dictated by the university.

The Coalition Application was originally developed in an effort to improve the college application for all students. Currently, there are 139 collegiate institutions that are accepting the Coalition Application in lieu of the Common App.

If you’re considering attending a University of California school (UC), then it is important to know that they have their own unique US application as well. It is set up similarly to the Common App, but does have a few variations. For instance, the UC App has replaced a personal statement with personal insight questions. These prompts closely align with common interview questions, in order to get to know you and your interests better.

A few other universities, like MIT and Georgetown University, have their own application system as well. We can assist you as you navigate through the various applications so as to make this process as seamless and straightforward as possible.
