What Application Systems Are Top 60 Schools Using?





Although it seems that the last application season has just came to a close, it won’t be long before the next round of application opens on August 1st, when colleges will open their systems for applications for Fall 2023. This summer is certainly the prime time for rising seniors to get started with their college applications!



Common App, the largest application platform, has added more than 50 new universities for the upcoming application season, including:



▼ University of Texas at Austin

▼ Texas A&M University

▼ University of Washington-Bothell

▼ University of Washington-Tacoma




Among all new joining schools, 20 of them serve racial minorities. Every year, more than 3 million applicants, counselors and teachers around the world use this platform throughout the application process, with even more applicants expected this year.


Another mainstream university application platform, Coalition, has also seen new universities joining, including Syracuse University, which became a member last year, and Maryland Institute College of Art.


This year, Maine Maritime Academy and Marquette University also officially started using Coalition.


So far, which platform are commonly applied universities using? We hereby offer an outline of the respective application platforms used by Top 60 Universities:




Different application systems have different setups. Therefore, different approaches can be used even when it comes to presenting the same materials.


We often think of strategizing application profile on the level of content. But it is worth keeping in mind that the platform of choice is also quite crucial to the final presentation. At Enlighteens, we know that details mean everything, especially when it comes to applications. With a personalized approach to every student’s profile, we make sure our students take advantage of every single detail to showcase their best side in their applications.
