Description

Class of 2025 – Join us for a 4-day workshop on how to tell your story on a college application! SM College Counselors, Eva Hester and Megan Olivor, are pairing up with College Admission Counselors to help students identify a personal statement topic and to give content feedback on their first draft so that students can walk away with edits to help finalize their common app personal statement. A sample of the itinerary is below:

Day 1: Presentations on how to write a great college essay, UC personal insight questions and supplemental essays. The presentation will include tips and ideas to get students thinking of their best stories. We will also start brainstorming activities. Students continue brainstorming as homework.

Day 2: Brainstorming day. Students continue to brainstorm and meet with a college counselor and/or a college admissions representative to help choose their topic. Students start to draft in class and finish their first draft as homework. 

Day 3: Draft review. Students bring in their first draft to get content feedback from a college counselor and/or a college admissions representative to fine tune their essay. 

Day 4: How to tell your story through other parts of the application – additional information, activities summary, etc. and general tips to stand out in the admissions process.
