College Bound Essays

September 28, 2013

Are you or your daughter/son/friend working on college application essays? The following tips may help, but feel free to email me if you’d like specific advice. A finely tuned essay is an essential part of the college package.


1.        Add your voice and passion to the piece.

2.        Use clean, simple language.

3.        Fill the essay with action words (eliminate is/was when possible).

4.        Don’t overload with adjectives and adverbs but do offer details.

5.        Weave in a unique and personal experience to every essay.


Good luck!
