Common Application College Admissions Essay News Flash!

Major changes have recently been announced about the Common Application essays. You can read about them here in detail. Short version:

1. The essay topics have changed, the "topic of your choice" has been eliminated, and the essay must be from 250 to 650 words - word length strictly enforced.

2. The shorter second essay has been deep-sixed (1000 characters on a job or extracurricular activity).

I'll post more when I've had a chance to look at the topics more closely.
