As the holiday season approaches, many college bound seniors are taking advantage of some time off in order to catch up on their college applications. Essays can be the most time-consuming and stressful part of the college admissions process, however, with the right tools and resources, students can put together compelling and thoughtful essays well before the looming application deadlines.

The US admissions process is holistic, meaning that colleges take into consideration the entire applicant, not just his or her grades and test scores. “Soft factors,” like recommendation letters, activities, and essays, among others, are just as important as the “hard factors” like grades, test scores, courses, and more. This is why it’s critical for students to take time to put together the best application possible – including taking time to write a great essay.

Here are 19 college application essay resources to help students start – and finish – their personal statements and supplemental essays.

The essay isn’t the most important part of the college application, but it can be the most time-consuming. Make sure your entire college application is comprehensive, complete, and thoughtful – not just the essay.
