College Application Workshops

Summer college application workshops offer students the chance to write an essay and fill out their Common Application in one week! 

Don’t put someone to sleep with the same old essay admissions officers have heard year after year.  In this workshop you’ll learn how to stand out from the crowd, what should and should not be included in your essay, and other helpful tips.  Students will complete an essay draft that can be used for their Personal Statement required on the Common Application.

 

The in second part of the week students will complete the Common Application with special focus on: 

  • Letters of recommendation

  • Residency

  • FAFSA, Scholarship, and Grants

  • Supplemental essays

  • Extra curricular activities 

  • ACT/SAT Trends

  • Creating School List

  • Best Practices
