Join our Winning College Applications workshop for seniors. You'll enjoy this intensive 4-week small group experience. You'll work on your own personal admissions strategy blueprint that includes detailed plans for SAT/ACT tests, recommendation letters, a detailed resume, interview prep, and more. You'll come away with three 500-word essays you can recycle for all of your college applications and experience a Q&A session with a former Harvard admissions interviewer.
College admissions officers will be reading your essays to see if you will be a good fit at their college. And with the SAT and ACT becoming optional at many colleges, admissions officers are spending more time reading essays in order to make this decision. Essays reveal how you think and who you are. If your essays don’t stand out from the crowd, your application may be filed in the “average” pile, even if you have a top-notch GPA and perfect SAT/ACT scores. That's why it's so important to capture the admissions officers' attention. They appreciate good writing as a breath of fresh air. We teach you how to express your unique, authentic voice as you tell the story of your life through your essays. And if you do this well, they will want to meet you (which means they want you at their campus)! Classes are held via zoom from 12:30-2:00pm Chicago time every Saturday and Sunday. Sign up now to reserve your spot in the next session.
