All the different college application options these days can get so confusing! The CommonApp makes the process easier, but it comes with its own set of rules that frustrate many. This course was designed to walk students through a simple to follow process so they can Ace the CommonApp.
I know that the course worksheets and video explanations won’t get you into your dream school all by themselves, but putting effort into your application can. That is why I designed this course and its bonuses to set you on the right track to getting into your dream school.
Ace the CommonApp is no ordinary course. Instead of offering general, sort of useless information that many courses contain, I take you step-by-step through filling out your CommonApp. I literally take screenshots of a real application and show you what to write in each box, how to answer every question while helping you understand why they’re asking it (which strengthens your application), and provide numerous examples from past students so you know how to make your application stand out. It doesn’t get any easier than Ace the CommonApp!
“Elisia Howard is so knowledgeable about the admissions process. We brought her in to educate our families on the Common App. She broke down an overwhelming topic into bite-sized, actionable pieces so families could make progress with less stress. We loved working with her on this project. Thanks so much, Elisia!”
– Jocelyn Paonita, CEO, The Scholarship System
“The CommonApp course was AMAZING! My son loved it and said it made filling out his applications much easier. It was nice for me as a parent and reduced my stress because I had no idea how to answer his questions or where to even start. You can tell the instructor has done this for a long time and knew what questions students would ask and was prepared with examples.”
– Rick L.
“This course made filling out my CommonApp so much easier! I was feeling lost and didn’t know how to answer so many of the questions they were asking me and didn’t know how to write the descriptions. It was so nice to have my application open and go through this course so I could go box by box and know I was doing everything right.”
– Sara H.
