The college essay is arguably the most stressful task for high school students to start and finish in preparing for the college application season. With what appears to be little time and few ideas, applications for admission are placed on hold until that final draft is constructed. Late nights and countless weekends are absorbed through many hours of last-minute essay construction.
But, it doesn’t have to be like this.
With careful planning, strategic brainstorming and structured timelines the level of stress can be reduced to a more manageable and profitable experience to create a compelling essay. Your story is important, but how you communicate it to others can make all the difference in the world.
Whether its your personal statement or a specific college essay, this is the place to tell your story, to express your life journey in a way that reflects who you are, what you are like and how you can contribute the college campus and community.
