Common App Essay Prompts

The Common Application (aka Common App) provides a way for students to apply to multiple colleges and universities. Over 900 institutions are participants of this platform.


The Common App offers students different essay prompts in which they choose and write a 250 - 650 word essay. Out of the seven prompts, they have updated one this year. The new prompt states:


"Reflect on something that someone has done for you that has made you happy or thankful in a surprising way. How has this gratitude affected or motivated you?"


Here are a few tips for students who select this prompt:

  • Considering this past year, how has it impacted you, and what are you grateful for?

  • Think about a time you've been grateful for someone else.

  • Tell a story of how gratitude has impacted your life.

  • Discuss the importance of being appreciative.

Whichever prompt you decide to use for your college essay, ensure it is thought provoking and stays true to who you are.

High school can be a confusing place, mostly in your junior and senior years. You must keep your grades up, prepare and take your ACTS and SATS, participate in extracurriculars, do volunteer hours, and make experiences, all while deciding what you want to do with your future. Throughout high school, Dr. Bradley has always been there to lend me advice. She was the reason that I stayed motivated when it got hard.  She would let all her students know about scholarships that she would find and would encourage us to apply for them. She also kept me informed about deadlines, helped me prepare my personal statement and scholarship essays, and wrote recommendation letters for me. I honestly do not know what I would do without her, even now, that I’m a second-year college student; she still keeps me in check.
