Hi guys

for those who are applying now or already in college, how much time have you spent on college apps and essays? Thanks

In all, I probably spent around 30 hours on my apps to MIT, UF, and Babson. I am planning to spend more if I need to apply to other schools before January 1st (after hearing from MIT). The essays took around 25 of those 30 hours.
The process takes a lot of revision and brain-storming. Don’t put it off, and don’t submit your first version!
Good luck.

6-8 hrs per app is certainly reasonable

I feel like spending one or two days (10 hours max) per college app is enough - writing supplements is hard imao
