Webinar: Everything You Think You Know About College Essays Is WRONG

There’s so much information about college essays out there, how can anyone, even a bright, talented student, tell the difference between what’s worth listening to and what’s not? That’s where I can help. I’m a journalist by training, and I only share information I have checked and double-checked, then checked again.

I go straight to the source – college admissions officers – to find out what they’re looking for in application essays, and I’m excited to share what I know with you.

I host a new session the second Wednesday of each month, February-September, at 7 pm Eastern. Can’t join us live? No problem! Just register, and I’ll send you the recording.

Why a Gifted Student Who Never Needs Help Hired Wow

Sophie is not the kind of student who needs help. She taught herself BC Calculus when it wasn’t offered at her high school. She tutored classmates in advanced chemistry and physics. When it was time to apply to college, Sophie did the research and picked her own schools. Along the way, she signed up for Wow’s free College Essay 101 class and read our book cover to cover.

Imagine her surprise when she sat down to write her essays and still felt stumped. Effective essays could only strengthen her application, and she felt like the ones she was writing didn’t represent her strengths.

Fortunately, Sophie was insightful enough to know she needed help.

That’s when she called and asked to work with a Wow coach. We got her back on track, guiding her through our process with a plan, simple instructions and a schedule to tackle all of the writing tasks for four highly selective schools.

Her mom was delighted, too: “You are truly a magician! Her essays are amazing.”
