The Writing section of the Common Application is where you enter your college essay, one of the most important elements of your application that will help admissions officers make their final decision. Do not write your college essay in the box provided in this section. It’s best to write your essay on a separate word document. Once you have revised it multiple times and are happy with the final result, copy and paste it into this section. However, make sure that you have selected the correct question before copying and pasting your text. In this section, you’ll also be asked to elaborate on certain questions that you may have answered earlier in the application. There’s also an Additional Information section. This section is not mandatory, however, if you do choose to add something, make sure that the topic is relevant and that you have talked about with a counselor beforehand.
