Most teens do not realize the college essay is more than just a writing assignment. To be admitted to a highly selective school the college essay needs to knock it out of the park. If you want your teen to quickly grab the attention of an admissions team, CollegeCareerResults a local education company, is hosting a College Admissions Essay Seminar on Thursday, June 22, 1-4 p.m., at La Quinta City Hall.
“Few teens have ever written anything about themselves,” says Elizabeth Venturini, owner of CollegeCareerResults. “An early start in the process will give your teen time to carefully consider life experiences, their uniqueness, and how these fit into the essay questions. You can decrease your teen’s stress by encouraging them to complete their college essay before the end of summer instead of waiting until the week before college applications are due.”
The Essay Seminar will help teens write an essay for admission to the most highly selective colleges, with a story that could only be theirs. The Essay Seminar will cover:
– Choosing essay topics
– Outlining and structuring the main statement
– Avoiding LAME topics (“The Day Fluffy Died,” “The Big Service Trip,” “How I Scored the Winning Goal”)
– Getting noticed on the UC Prompts
– Answering “Why us?” supplemental essays
“Every student has a story to tell,” says Venturini. “The key is learning how to tell your story in a compelling and effective way.” With so many talented students getting 4.0+ GPAs and perfect admissions test scores, a mediocre essay can make or break admittance to your student’s preferred school. The Essay Seminar is perfect to jumpstart the writing process. You want your teen to have all their essays done before the end of summer so they can focus on homework, test prep, and school activities.
