What are some best practices for completing my essays in the Common App?

Because your essays are such an important part of your Common App, keep some of these best practices in mind when completing them:
  • Make sure you periodically save your work by clicking the Continue button.
  • Keep a file on your computer with a back up of your essays.
  • If you are pasting your essay into the Common App, paste it first into Note Pad or Text Edit, and then paste it into the Common App to avoid formatting irregularities.
  • Always double check that the content appears correctly and in its entirety.
  • Be sure to proofread your essays for any typos.
  • Make sure you have selected a prompt for your essay (if applicable).
