Let’s face it, senior year can be a chaotic time. Between applications and standardized testing, many students run out of steam when attempting to write multiple personal essays with dizzying deadlines. The end result: Shallow, disorganized, or poorly-written personal narratives that cause admission counselors eyes to glaze over.
Grab their attention by capturing who you truly are with your own voice and words! If you’re a student entering your final year of high school, join like-minded peers who want to be productive while having fun in an interactive peer setting. Explore the strengths that set you apart from other applicants. Capture examples that reflect your unique personality. Create template essays that can be tweaked for any college once the Common App comes out in August. Then kick back and glide into senior year with the time to enjoy it.
In just one session, you will come away with:
- Distinctive and compelling personal narratives that can be tailored to the 2019 Common App prompts
- A memorable “Why Us?” response by uncovering unique details about specific colleges you want to target
- The confidence and skills to tackle any personal essay, anytime
- Personal examples and anecdotes that express who you are as a unique individual–not only for essays, but for college interviews
