A lot of great high school students write not-so-great college essays—like how soccer taught them about teamwork or how they learned about different cultures during a trip to Canada. Most students have no idea what college admissions officers actually care about, or that college essays are written very differently than an essay for English class. Join Collegewise to learn what admissions officers want (and don't want) to read, which topics are overused, and discover writing techniques that are engaging and effective.
