This four-day course allows rising seniors the opportunity to take the time to formulate and reflect upon one of the most significant pieces of writing they will produce as a high school student. What better time to formulate an essay without the pressure of an early action or early decision deadline looming. Your transcript and resume provide college admissions officers with all of your stats -- GPA, classes, clubs, awards, etc. -- but how do they find out about you? This workshop will assist you in writing an essay which reflects your own unique story. We'll work on mechanics (grammar, sentence structure, proofreading!) but focus on the content of what you have to say. Write an essay that makes a lasting impression -- of you!
