The Common Application is an organization of colleges and universities which have united behind a central mission, which is make college admission process as fair and as equitable as possible.

Let me take a moment to explain what than means.


The Common Application Promotes Equity, Access and Integrity

One of the confusing aspects of the Common Application is that it is not an actual “application” – it is an organization.

It would be a lot less confusing if The Common Application were to call itself The Common Application Organization – then you would know that you are dealing with an organization which, in this case, consists of nearly 500 colleges and universities.

However, this is not the case – the organization, itself, goes by the name The Common Application – and the mission of the organization is to promote equity, access and integrity by implementing a common college admission application process.

Once you have grasped that the organization and the process are both known by the name The College Application, you should be fine.

How I Help Students Applying With The Common App

The process of applying to colleges and universities that are members of the Common Application is referred to as “the Common App”.

I use the term “process” because it is not really an “application form” in the typical sense – it is an online application submission process.

One of the required components in the process is an essay – generally referred to as “the Common App Essay”.

This is the part of the Common App process with which I am directly involved.

I help students write compelling Common App essays that improve their chances of being accepted into the colleges and universities of their choice.


Why Students Need A Common App Essay Tutor

The Common App Essay is, in all respects, a College Application Essay or a College Admission Essay.

Many colleges and universities that are not members of The Common Application require an essay as part of their application process.

The Common Application members do, as well – and, as I have stated, that essay is generally referred to as “The Common App Essay”.

Like other college admission essays, it is a very challenging essay to write, because it requires self-analytical skills that most students have not had an opportunity to develop during their academic career.

As a Common App Essay Tutor, I work with students in a one-on-one format, using a combination of telephone, email and Skype, and help them craft an essay that expresses something unique and memorable about them.
