Join the experts from The Admissions Angle for PART 5 of their BACK TO SCHOOL WEBINAR series: Choosing a topic for your Common App personal statement

When it comes to filling out the Common Application, students are allowed only ten spots to discuss extracurricular activities, with only 150 characters to discuss each of the ten. What should you be saying? How should you arrange your activities? How does this affect your odds of admission?

Meanwhile, the Additional Information section offers students an extra 650 words to use for whatever they’d like. Oftentimes, students forego this opportunity believing that they have nothing to fill the space, but this can be a mistake.

This webinar will discuss the DOs and DON’Ts of both the extracurricular activities and additional information sections, offering students guided advice and practical tips for maximizing these important aspects of the Common Application.
