Series Details


The College Advice Moderator team is excited to bring back All About the Application where we will be doing a deep dive into almost everything about the Common App! New to this series, wonderful College Advice Tutors will also be hosting Ask Me Anything's (AMAs) on their application and college experience.

To Tutors: If you would like to host an AMA session, please DM Cindy to participate! 📝 All About the Application - We will learn about the format of Common App, what is on the application, test scores (and if you should use them), what to write about, choosing colleges to apply for, and what admissions officers look for. We will walk you through the Common App website and show you some websites which are good for finding colleges.

❓ Ask Me Anything - This is your chance to ask tutors how they ended up where they are. Look at the session descriptions below and mark your calendars for AMAs hosted by people in your field of interest.


Attendance is NOT mandatory! Sessions of All About the Application will be repeated with the SAME content. AMAs will NOT be repeated unless the tutor chooses to do so.

There are many sessions because of accessibility to many time-zones and schedules. Please go to only one of the sessions you are available for unless you would like to see the same content again or have thought of a new question you would like to ask us in real-time.

About the Tutors

Hello! I'm a college sophomore and I love most things science. I'm here to have fun and help out!✌️ I love listening and playing music, drawing, watching movies and anime, doing chemistry, and reading sci-fi books. I have probably heard way too many genres of music and am definitely a massive nerd. Feel free to DM me if you want to talk about anything: ranting, art advice, need someone to talk to, just finished a show and need to vent. I'm happy to be of service :)

Looking forward to seeing you in one of my sessions :))
