Writing Your College Admissions Essay (Session Three)

Instructor(s): Wendy Low
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Learn to write impressive essays for admission applications, the kind that wow admissions officers by what you say and how you say it, the kind that advertise you: creative, curious, intelligent, hard-working, involved. We will analyze the options for the Common Application personal essay and examine some common traps each essay question can set for you. You should also bring any specific essay questions from schools to which you want to apply. We will practice with the real questions and give each other feedback. By Thursday, you will turn in or email a complete draft of an essay. Follow-up feedback with the instructor will be scheduled individually for Friday. Keep to the schedule and you will leave with one finished essay and better techniques to approach other essays as needed.
