A student essay in an application to a college or university is an opportunity to show they can write well and support ideas with logical arguments while revealing their best qualities. A student can demonstrate to the admission committee what makes them stand out from other applicants in a favorable light. As a college counselor, you can guide the writing of an exceptional essay by understanding their importance, what makes them remarkable, and how to edit without taking over. This class will cover the role of the essay in the college application, working with students, tools for counselors and guest lectures from experts in the field of college admission essays.
