    Isn't the Coalition just the competition from the Common App? Basically the same concept but with slightly different participants?

    Pretty much. They’ll tell you how different/better they are, fixing all that ails college admissions. But yes, you fill out one set of data that is shared with many schools, to reduce the duplicate effort of many applications.

    Then, if you have some schools that only take the Common and some the Coalition, it somewhat defeats the purpose.

    I remember hearing about Coalition when my D18 was going through the admission process, it was still 'in the works'. However since all of the selective schools she was applying to were on Common (or on their own still) we didn't bother with it. When S23 goes through I guess I'll look into it more, maybe. Common was pretty easy to use.

    @Publisher Common App has all of those as well, except UGA and UWashington Seattle. They make up for UGA by having GA Tech and Emory! They also have Vanderbilt, UVA, all the UNCs, all the SUNYs and all the CUNYs; Wake Forest, Davidson, Darthmouth, John Hopkins, CalTech, Brown, Bryn Mawr, Carnegie Mellon, Elon, Penn State, UPenn, UMiami, Princeton, Rice, U Richmond, Howard, American, Baylor, Bowdoin, Carleton, Grinnell, Cornell, Claremont McKennon, Morehouse.... I guess I just don't see the need for another admissions application process when Common App is known to GCs already and students/parents are use to working with it.

    My D found the Common App to be much more user friendly than the Coalition App. Her recommenders had trouble with the Coalition App as well.
