Best Practices from 7+ Years of Stellar Application Essays
"Most students submit their first or second-draft essays to the admissions office, not knowing that they’re not the best representation of themselves. I’ve seen far too many students make the mistake of writing about dry or tired topics that don’t give them an edge or help admissions officers to get to know them better.
We’re teaming up with Ethan Sawyer, the College Essay Guy, to provide this workshop for Kern County students to gain an edge over the competition and be confident in the essays they are submitting this year.
If you have a junior in high school who will be applying for college this fall, now is the time to start working on applications and specifically, essays. See you there!"
