Oldies but Goodies

By Ryan Hickey + updated on November 17th, 2010

With the admissions season hitting fever pitch, I’d like to take a quick moment to draw your attention to some posts from last year that are still extremely applicable to 2010 applicants.

If you’re applying to college, you’re probably using the Common Application for at least some of your schools. The Common App prompts for 2010 are the same as they were last year, when we did an in-depth breakdown of each one. Check them out!

Common App Prompt 1

Common App Prompt 2

Common App Prompt 3 and 4

Common App Prompt 5

Common App Prompt 6

And for those of you applying to other programs, here’s one of my favorite posts that deals with another very common question – specifically, how long is too long in an admissions essay?

You can always check out the archives to review all of the material we’ve covered over the last year. And if you have something that you’d like to learn more about or that you think would make a post, never hesitate to let me know!
