    Some do, some don't. The common app usually stays the same several years in a row. Prompts should be available for all of those colleges (at least in an ordinary year they would be up by now). Keep checking their websites.

    Any of those colleges can change prompts yearly. If you set up your common app account, for the colleges that use it, you will see the various college-specific prompts apart from the personal statement. Or you can look at each college’s individual application to see what their supplemental prompts are.

    To be safe, assume that they change. I’m in the same position as you, but I don’t want to take the chance the prompts might change, especially with COVID and the George Floyd protests, which might cause there to be some new prompts.
