The College Essay Impact Coach says:
When you read the essay samples above, you wonder:
Did these students get into the universities of their choice?
Were these good enough for application readers?
What should be my approach - all candid or curated?
Who decides what is a ten on ten essay?
Well, these questions are valid. They are however not in your knowing. What is in your knowing is - Your Story. Your story - whether of failure, success, life, death, is unique and original. That's the first rule of college essay writing. To stay true to your narrative and then build on it for impact.
I know, it seems easier said than done. That's why at University Connection, there is a carefully curated Writing Enhancement Program that's frankly more of a Thinking enhancement program. It helps you delve deeper, reflect and introspect in order to express your narrative effectively.
