Writing the College Admissions Essay: $200

Need Help Writing Your College Admission Essay? Writing the college admission essay can be a daunting task. It is often the scariest part of the admission process, but it doesn’t have to be. Why is the essay even required? College admission boards consider the essay to be the opportunity for them to get to know the students beyond test scores and transcripts; the essay gives students the opportunity to highlight their distinctive qualities and strengths, and it allows the admitting officers to really hear your voice and discover the true you. In this workshop, you will draft and revise a personal reflective essay about you and your unique experiences. Reminder, the University of Utah does not require an admissions essay unless applying to the Honors Program. The workshop is designed to help students create a finalized version of the admissions essay, ready to submit to colleges. The session will run Monday-Thursday, June 9-June 12, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Course offered for rising seniors only, our Class of 2015.
