Program Description

Event Details

College applications for the Regular Decision cycle are due soon! December is crunch time for putting together all of the written materials, which are the last piece of the application for many students (and potentially the most important). 

Led by two college essay experts, Mansi Kothari (Scarsdale High School Alum, UPenn BA, and Stanford JD/MS) and Kate Clairmont (Columbia BA and Princeton PhD Candidate), this workshop is a high-level overview of how to approach the essay writing process in a thoughtful and efficient way. It includes tips for writing and editing as well as best practices for supplemental essays. 

Increasingly, the college essay is a key driver in admissions decisions. We believe in the power of effective storytelling to open doors. Whether you’re just starting to draft your essays or you’re focused on applying the finishing touches, this workshop is for you!

Please note that this presentation will be recorded and the recording shared with all registrants after the event for their own personal use and convenience.
