The Common App essay prompts will remain the same for 2022-2023. Because as we enter the third year of a global pandemic, consistency is not a bad thing.
Common App knows from most recent survey on the topic that over 95% of every group who responded–students, counselors, teachers, and admission officers–agree that the prompts spark effective essays. That’s why they kept them the same last year as well, with the exception of adding a new one about gratitude.
Prompts are not topics. They are simply questions designed to spark thinking. Below is the full set of essay prompts for 2022-2023. Common App will also retain the optional COVID-19 question within the Additional Information section.
