The 2 hour workshop covers:


  • The purpose of the essays

  • How to choose a topic that differentiates your application

  • How to approach the writing, even if you think you can't write

  • The most common mistakes I see, including the one that tears me apart

  • The key differences between the Common Application essay, the UC Personal Insight Questions, and individual college supplements


This is a learning and brainstorming seminar to help students jump-start their essay. Students will leave with a packet of helpful information and ideas on what to write about. For additional guidance, students may schedule separate, private meetings with me.
