Make it Pop!: Writing the College Essay (for Allston-Brighton & Cambridge High Schoolers)


Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Mar 24 2021


Online via Zoom

*For high school students living or attending school in Allston-Brighton or Cambridge!*

The personal statement essay can be one of the most stressful elements of the college application—but it doesn’t need to be! The personal statement is your opportunity to share parts of yourself with college admissions teams that they can’t see through test scores and your resume alone. This workshop series will provide tips for crafting a compelling essay, effectively telling your story, and proving to admissions teams that you would be a great student at their school!

Note: Students must register for ALL EVENTS in this series! (March 3, 10, 17, 24)
