Happenings

Two words: The Essay.

Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of high school seniors quite like the sight of an empty Word document that needs to not be empty. The cursor flicks on and off as they ponder how it seems like 5 real time minutes pass in the space of what feels like 1 minute. Eventually, after some laborious soul-searching and (usually) copious amounts of caffeine, students produce their first draft, a document that, always needs copious amounts of reworking. What follows from this first document is the truly time-consuming task: drafting and finalizing.

So, how do you write a WINNING application essay that stands out from the crowd?
