Look for this workshop
next season!

Juniors! It may seem like your time in high school is far from over, but now is the time to begin thinking about your college choices and the application essays that they require. In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to begin brainstorming about the college application essay process in a supportive and pressure-free environment. Think essay writing is dull and painful? No! Most application essay writing involves talking about yourself and sharing your experiences and stories, so we will also spend some time having conversations about our experiences to brainstorm essay responses. The goal: to leave with a list of potential essay ideas and several outlines of those essays.

Different schools require different essays, from those on the Common Application to supplemental pieces, to particular topics at certain schools, or for scholarships. It will help a great deal if you have a list (even if it is a long one or is incomplete) of the written requirements and questions/topics of the colleges and programs you are contemplating. Juniors who participate in this workshop will be automatically registered for a follow-up application essay drafting and revising workshop in Fall 2014.
