The college essay represents 25% of your application, and can make the difference between whether you get accepted to your dream school or not. And as more schools go test-optional, college essays are more critical than ever. But writing a personal statement is vastly different than writing an essay for AP English or History, and admissions officers can tell within moments – or the first few sentences – whether they want to read on.
The Common App personal statement requires students to dig deep and express their authentic selves with a compelling and fresh narrative in 650 words or less – no small feat. Helping a young person craft a meaningful personal statement takes a unique set of skills beyond just the rudiments of grammar and the fundamentals of answering a written prompt. It takes keen insight into the young adult mind and heart to help them make sense of their own experiences and translate them into an impactful essay.
