Will colleges look down on an applicant who uses the Common Application?

Posted by:
Absolutely not. Many students feel that colleges will think they are lazy for using it. However the colleges who subscribe to it welcome it. In fact, for many colleges, this is THE application form. Students should be aware that most schools have an additional "supplement" to the Common App, and should make sure they get submitted with the application. The Common Application has teacher recommendations (2) as well.
