Writing the College Essay

The more selective colleges require several essays as a key part of their applications.  In addition, sometimes a student’s writing – either in their essay or in the longer answers to application questions – can make the difference in admission decision.  This module helps students produce the best possible application essays and writing, for individual colleges and the Common App, and helps them think more carefully about how they express themselves throughout their applications.

This option is best suited for rising 12th grade students who need support writing or
editing their college admission essay.

Ideal start: June of Junior year in High School
