2014-15 Common Application Essay Prompts
Application Essay Prompts
The Common Application will retain the current set of first-year
essay prompts for 2014-15, without any edits or additions. The essay
length will continue to be capped at 650 words. The feedback received from
member colleges and school counselors has been positive. The essay
prompts will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that they continue
to serve students and member colleges well.
The essay prompts are as follows:
·Some students have a background or story that is so central to
their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without
it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
·Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure.
How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
·Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What
prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
·Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly
content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to
·Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that
marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture,
community, or family.
