Colleges with no supplements?

edited January 2012 in Common Application
Out of curiosity (and there's probably a list around here), is there a list somewhere of all the colleges that don't require supplements to the Common App? What happened to a friend of mine last year was that her mother discovered that some places don't have supplements, and she sent my friend's app to a bunch of those places just because (money being a non-issue). Did she consult some sort of list?

    There's a list on the Common App site stating the colleges that use the Common App and which ones require a supplement.

    That list shows online supplements; a lot have paper supplements. I think this is a good question - which colleges accept the common app with no supplement?

    Colby College has no supplemental essay beginning this year.

    It's important to note that even if a college has a supplement, it may just be revalidating some information, SSN, asking you your intended major, or asking if family members attended the school, but no extra essays. Northeastern and TCNJ are two of these. Read the supplement before you conclude you don't want any schools with supplements.

    Dartmouth, University of Miami, and Middlebury have supplements like those that geltzisboss mentioned.
