BREAKING NEWS! The Common App has yet again changed its application essay prompts – just in time for the 2017-18 application season. Last year we saw no changes whatsoever and in 2015-16 saw only minor tweaks with the introduction of a new prompt.

There is now a total of seven prompts (up from five), although the word limit remains the same at 650.
