Common app question


Recommended Posts

My daughter is setting up her common app account and she says it is a required field to enter her siblings names not just how many she has.  What possible reason could there be for needing the names of her siblings since they are not applying to college for some time?

Just FYI for questions like this one, you can also feel free to contact their help staff with their online form.  I found they responded promptly, and they may be able to give you some insight.

Thanks!  I guess it isn’t a super huge deal, but just seems like they are trying to grab any data they can.  My daughter did say it was marked with a red asterisk as being required.  I guess we will contact them to see what they say.

And to be clear, my post was not to discourage you from asking questions on this board.  I know that often these online help forms aren't very responsive, but in the case of the Common App I've been pleasantly surprised.
