The Ultimate Guide to Writing Your Personal Statement and College Application Essays


Webinar | View Recording on Demand


Your personal statement or main application essay is the one element of your applications that you can begin earlier than any other. It is also the single element over which you have the most control, so this summer is an ideal time to define your narrative before the stress of senior year begins. During our live webinar, Kimberly Hewitt, the director of our college counseling practice, will provide an overview of the college application essay planning and writing process.  Topics include:


  • Learn our six-step essay formula for selecting your topic and planning your structure, regardless of the prompt

  • See what kinds of application essays you will need to write and what rising seniors should do this summer to get a head start

  • Analyze actual essays from our college admissions consulting students who were admitted to highly selective colleges
