A well crafted personal statement or application essay can make a world of difference in a student's admission and scholarship opportunities. Even when a college application says an essay is optional, admission counselors agree that they view applicants much more favorably when they choose to submit an essay that provides some insight into the student’s personality.

In this intensive, hands-on session we will cover the essentials of creating a compelling and effective college admission or scholarship essay.  Each student will learn how to determine what to relate in an essay and how to make it unique, compelling and memorable.  Throughout the workshop, students will complete exercises that help them hone their writing style, determine the essay’s content and polish it so that it stands out among other essays. 


 We’ll walk you step-by-step through the entire admissions and application process.


How to construct a strong opening sentence that draws the reader in, and how to create interest and tension to make them want to keep reading. 

How to use the right tone, when to use humor (and when not to):

How and when to take risks; the importance of empathy, awareness, and humor.

How to wrap it up in a way that pulls the whole essay together :

Mechanics and usage; grammar, organization, and style.
Avoiding cliché, weak phrasing, sentimentality, redundancy, and contradiction.


A thorough review of both successful and unsuccessful essays.



College essay writing with a  The BoOsT Method:

1.
Brainstorm
2.
Organize
3.
Outline
4.
Strategic Story telling
5.
Technique

Essentially, students need to spend a significant portion of their time during the
brainstorming/pre-writing stage, reflecting on questions that boost their creativity. Once they have these standout elements, they can organize their ideas into a basic outline.

The
storytelling process is where their essay leaps off of the page into an engaging, emotional, thought-provoking story. Technique is all about polishing the essay during the revision process. Students should write a minimum of four drafts for the essay, each draft focusing on one key component.
