Why Not Use Summer To Learn How To Write A College Essay?

How to Write a College Essay

Many students wait until the fall of their senior year to focus on their Common Application Essay, but why not do a bit of drafting over the summer, I say!

I encourage students to at least review the Common Application Essay prompts and make a list of topics that sizzle. Just as they learned how to ride a bike, rising seniors need to learn how to write a college essay. It’s a practiced skill not an innate talent.
