August 1. If you’re preparing for college, you know the importance of this date. The Common Application opens every year on August 1. Once open, applicants can create their account and start filling out their information. Experts say that the summer before senior year of high school, which is NOW, is the best time for students to start their applications.
Students should start reviewing the requirements for their target schools and drafting their essays. It is important to start preparing early to proofread everything and send the applications on time. Also take into consideration that filling out the application itself takes time, and many schools require recommendation letters from teachers and counselors. They will also need time to write the letters and submit them. Things will get hectic once the school year starts and there will be assignments and projects that will need to be done.
This is where we come into play.
