Common App Schools That Don't Require Additional Essays
Low effort, high quality schools to consider for your list
By now, most of you are quite familiar with the Common Application ("Common App"). And most of you that are applying to competitive institutions are painfully aware that there are often extra essay or short answer prompts to complete.
The good news is that this isn't always the case. Recently we introduced a new feature in College Kickstart that identifies Common App schools that don't require additional essay or short answer prompts.
Put another way, these are schools that you can apply to easily once you've completed the core common app. It's another useful way to narrow down your list choices, or to consider new ones that may be a good fit and don't require extra effort to submit.
Note: the list isn't exhaustive—it's meant to cover the more competitive 4 year institutions in the nation.
