Taming the College Application Essay

Taming the College Application Essay

The links below connect to video segments from the College Application Essay Workshop that was presented on July 23 and July 30, 2020.  Of course, being in person provided the benefit of the discussion and some time to actually put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard).  The workshop is broken into smaller sections for ease of viewing.  You may also want to pause the video at certain times to take part in the brainstorming and writing activities.  If nothing else, the key ideas come through. Capture a slice of YOUR story in YOUR voice. That's what the college really wants to receive.  In addition to the video clips, you’ll find a copy of a sample essay that was used for discussion as a part of Part 4.
