Why don't Columbia, MIT, Swarthmore, USC take the Common App?

I'm wondering why just about every Top 40 school except these I list takes the Common App, but these don't? Or am I wrong in visiting the Common App website... I could not find these schools on their list?

William, Amherst, Pomona, Wesleyan, but not Swarthmore... any reason?
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, but not Columbia... any reason?
Caltech, Harvey Mudd, but not MIT... any reason?

Just thought it odd, and wondering if there were a story behind that.
