If you’re applying to college next fall, it is almost time to get started on your college application essays. Essay prompts for the 2020-2021 Common Application and the UC App will be released soon. Students can get started on their applications over the summer, leaving more time for supplements and other college prep in the fall.
The hardest part of the college application process is often making your essay personal. This is why it’s critical to get started on the right foot. Colleges want to know about you in the essay. The essay gives you the opportunity to reveal something about yourself that’s not found anywhere else in the application, and for some students it can be hard to decide what to write about.
That's where SSG Academic Coaching comes in. I have 15 years experience helping students dig deep to find those meaningful topics that will reveal what makes them unique individuals. I work with them to develop their essays, oversee their writing process, critique and give feedback, and ensure that it gets sent off in time.
