College Application Writing Workshop

You have the academic grades, the extracurricular activities, and the standardized test scores to get into the college of your dreams. Now you must prove to the admissions committee that you’re unique compared to other applicants who appear similarly qualified. Your personal statement is your chance to set yourself apart. How do you do this?

Through our College Application Writing Workshop, you will learn what colleges look for in a standout admissions essay. You will examine successful essays and analyze the elements responsible for their appeal.  The course focuses on the UC application and Common Application essays and also includes weekly one-on-one meetings with the instructor.  Students will receive tailored feedback and guidance throughout the entire personal statement-writing process.  The class is structured so that students can brainstorm, revise, and complete both of their UC application essays and their common application essay by the end of the course.
