Common Application

In this two-hour, small group session, students and parents will start with a 30-minute update from College Edge. There are many changes within the college admissions world and we want you to be informed. Then students will begin their Common Application, which is accepted by more than 800 colleges and universities. A counselor will assist students with pre-application organization, completing personal information/demographics, and strategically listing and describing activities. As time permits, students will scope out supplemental essays or projects.

Personal Statement

In this 90-minute, small-group session, students will write a first-draft personal statement/college essay. Before writing begins, students will be guided through a process where they identify their values, strengths, and unique experiences that would be appreciated on a college campus. Next, students will write a draft essay that responds to one of the Common Application prompts, revealing their best qualities and helping them stand apart from other applicants. Instruction on topic development, finding a unique voice, selecting stories and details, and essay structure are key components of this session. Students will receive personalized feedback and an action plan for editing and finalizing the essay.

Supplemental Essay

In this 90-minute, small group session, students will develop their responses to supplemental essays required by select schools. These writing prompts are not to be overlooked, as they play a critical and evaluative role in admissions decisions. Using personal details and examples to write their essays, students will demonstrate their interest in a particular school and show admissions counselors why they are a strong match for the campus. Students will receive personalized feedback and an action plan for completing each required writing prompt. There will be time to return to the personal statement if students do not have a lot of supplements to complete.
