Advisor SectionNEW to the Common App this year (2017-18) is the opportunity for students to invite an Advisor to review their application. The purpose of an Advisor is to provide personalized feedback on a student’s application.All LHS students have the opportunity to receive in-person advising from their school counselor. School counselors are more than happy to review applications and/or essays if a student reaches out to schedule a time to do so.To that end, the Counseling Department respectfully requests that students not invite their school counselor to be an Advisor in the Common App. Doing so generates an email that the counselor is not able to respond to.If you would like your counselor to review your application, please schedule an appointment with them.Courses & Grades SectionThere are six Common App member colleges and universities using Courses & Grades for 2017-2018. These six colleges are the only ones that are able to receive Courses & Grades information.
Therefore, there is no reason for students to complete this section unless they are applying to one of these colleges.
Chapman University (CA)
The George Washington University (Washington, DC)
The Ohio State University (OH)
Purdue University (IN)
University of Southern California (CA)
West Virginia University (WV)
Courses & Grades was developed from the feedback of member institutions, high school students, and counselors. The Common App hosted a series of student and counselor focus groups with beta testing to determine how to make the self-reported transcript process accessible and efficient.
