The College Essay Challenge: Length: 650 words, Topic: You, Goal: Stand out from the crowd. Do you accept? A stellar college essay can be the deciding factor between a “yes” or “no” on your application. In this workshop, we’ll uncover ways to package your uniqueness in an essay that impresses admissions officers. First, we’ll review some college essay basics, then we’ll discuss three winning essay structures, and practice how to brainstorm and outline them. Lastly, I’ll give you my checklist for selecting the right topic for you. Juniors: come ready to think, write and share with others. Seniors: bring your drafts or outlines for feedback!
