College essays are one of the most critical components of the admissions process. Through their carefully crafted personal statements and supplementary essays, students can convey their unique strengths and passions and stand out from the rest of the competition. However, the process of writing original and compelling essays is often challenging and arduous.
Geared towards high school students who are applying to college this fall and those students who are interested in getting a head start on the application process, this workshop will:
- Provide a deep understanding of the role of application essays in the college admissions process
- Go over the distinctive features of an effective personal statement that will grab the attention of an admission officer
- Guide students on choosing the ideal Common Application essay prompt to answer
- Brainstorm appropriate topics for the Common Application personal statement
- Show students how to structure their essays in a fluid and coherent manner
All attendees of the workshop are granted a complimentary one-to-one counseling session with Andy to go over essay outlines and first drafts.
