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.

4. Strategic Story telling
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.
