"Second verse, same as the first..."
A heads up on the essay prompts for the 2016-17 Common Application (the ones this year's high school juniors will be pondering). They will remain the same as the 2015-16 essay prompts. [Click HERE to read the release from the folks at Common App.]
Good news, indeed, as high school juniors can now begin to work on -- or at least give serious thought to -- their Common App essay. And since you can create your Common App account NOW for 2016-17 (for students who will graduate high school in 2017), and actually start working on the Common Application (your data will be saved and carry over when the Common App for 2016-17 goes "live" on August 1), you can truly get a jump start on your college applications!
