Tips to Navigate Essays

Lately, we have been guiding our clients as they revise their essays.

For most high school students, the Common App makes applying to colleges simpler because there is one common essay. But there’s no such thing for Academies. Our clients have on average 10 unique essays to write.

So how do you get after it the right way? Here’s a few tips to navigate it and not get overwhelmed.

1) Focus on these essays before school starts. Once AP classes, sports, and clubs get underway, you are significantly behind.

2) Brainstorm -> Outline -> First Draft. Always in that order. Do not skip a step.

3) Personal examples matter. If there’s one law to writing, it’s Stories > Facts. People remember a good story much more than a list.

Good luck writing, and knock out as much as you can these few weeks!
