We just wanted to send a quick reminder about the deadline, but we may be preaching to the choir on here. What may be lesser known is how we handle the forms on the Common App. Look over to the right side bar of this blog if you're looking for clarification.
Be sure to fill out all parts of the common app itself. That includes the biographical information, your current coursework, your AP scores (if you have any you would like to report) and completion of those essays.
For those of you who might have taken time off between high school and college, or taken a break in college, or transferred from one college to another, be sure to mention this in your essays including what you did on your breaks. Time spent working or in the military is the most common explanation, but there may be more. We want to know how you arrived at this point.
Remember that we require your high school transcript (or GED score reports) and ALL college transcripts. Yes, if you've attended five colleges, we need all five transcripts. You may think your credit may not transfer from a particular school. We need that transcript as well. Our policy is such that we are looking for everything. If you attended high school or college abroad and your transcripts are in a foreign language, they will need to be translated. WES seems to have worked best for applicants in the past.
We'll try and answer your questions below. As you could probably tell, we are in the thick of our review of applicants from high school, so it may take some time for us to get back to you.
Good luck finishing up!
