“College Application Essay Workshop"

Applying to college this year? Unsure about your appication essays? Dreading the thought of starting your essays? Want to make writing your essays easier and less stressful? Want a leg up onver the competition? Want your essay to stand out and be remembered?

Then this workshop is for you! 

While your academic profile is important, your personal essay is how an admissions officer hears from YOU as an individual, in YOUR own voice, telling YOUR own, unique story. YOUR personal essay is a key factor in admission.

Did you know that admissions officers on average spend less than 20 minutes per aplication?  In peak season thaye may have several hundred applications a week to review.

Did you know that essay readers decide in the FIRST 10-15 seconds of reading an essay if they are going to read it all?

Your essay has to be personal, original, focused and connect strongly with the reader the FIRST time. The best application essays connect with the reader quickly and make them want to read it ALL.  The best essays  move you from being just another applicant to someone they want to have on campus.
