Writing Thoughtful and Meaningful College Application Essays
DATE AND TIME
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
College application essays are an extremely important part of your college apps. The personal statement is a critical soft factor that over 80% of colleges place importance on, according to NACAC’s most recent State of College Admissions report. The essay allows admissions officers to see another side of the applicant, so it is important that students use the personal statement to tell admissions officers something about who they are that they cannot learn anywhere else in the application. IvyWise college admissions counselors share tips on brainstorming essay topics, beginning the first draft, being mindful of word choice and tone, and carefully editing the final essay. They also explain the importance of supplemental essays and how students can use them to demonstrate their interest in each college on their list.
