Learn to write impressive essays for admission applications, the kind that wow admissions officers by what you say and how you say it and that advertise you: creative, curious, intelligent, hard-working, involved. We will analyze the 6 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 where you want to apply. We will practice with the real thing 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.
