With more and more problems created with the launch this fall of the newest version of the Common Application, there is fortunately another option beyond the individual colleges’ applications (where they still have them.) The Universal College Application is gaining broad appeal. Many of the most selective colleges have become members of the Universal College Application including the most recent addition being the University of Chicago. Moving forward, students will have more options in their college application process. You can learn about the UCA and how to apply to its member colleges at www.universalcollegeapp.com as an alternative to the Common Application.
