The Common Application is an undergraduate college admission application that applicants may use to apply to over 800 colleges and universities.
Advantage: Students can complete one application but can use it for multiple colleges. Therefore, filling out the Common Application should save students time, energy, and effort.
College's Own Application Each College should have its own application. Generally, these are available on the Apply Disc; on the Internet; or can be sent to your home directly.
Advantage: Some schools, in particular state schools, accept only their own application.

Student Profile Forms/Resume Please complete the Letter of Recommendation Questionnaire as part of the college application process. Be as detailed as possible.
