College Admissions: the “Common App”

College Admissions: the "Common App"

Dr. Kevin Bukatman from College Planning Service USA wraps up his first Epee series with a detailed look at the Common App.

The Common App is a college admissions resource that did not exist for the parents of today’s students.  Because of that, it’s hard to help their kids use it correctly, let alone effectively.

As with all Epee courses, this is a topic that schools don’t teach, where a basic understanding can prevent you from making some really costly mistakes.
