Undergraduate and Graduate College Application Essay Workshop
One of the most important components of your college application is the essay. This is your opportunity to set yourself apart from the hundreds of other applicants who have comparable grades and test scores. It’s also the portion of your application that admissions offices use to determine who you are as an individual and whether you would fit well within the University.
In this workshop participants will be offered comprehensive instruction in
the fundamentals of a successful college admissions essay, along with an individualized look at personal goals and strengths to produce a highly effective and distinctive admissions essay.
Meet the Instructor, Melissa Hooper, M.Ed.
"Most students look at Critical Reading passages the same way they would study for a History test. They view the passage as a big list of facts and statistics they have to memorize before answering the questions. Bad idea! To get a better score, students need a better method." - Melissa Hooper
