Kim Lifton and Susan Knoppow discuss their new parent guide: How to Write an Effective College Application Essay – The Inside Scoop for Parents

Wow President Kim Lifton and CEO Susan Knoppow told Fox2 News anchor Maurielle Lue at Fox’s Detroit affiliate station that parents can help kids write college application essays.  They stressed  parents MUST not write the essays for them!

The Wow co-founders, who are promoting their new book, How to Write an Effective College Application Essay – The Inside Scoop for Parents, spoke about the college application essay during a Sunday morning interview (Aug. 14) with Lue at the Fox2 studio in Southfield, MI. In this feature segment, Back to School, they discussed the importance of the college application essay, how to stand out and what parents can do to help their children — without overstepping their role.

 Embracing Parents

They chatted about Wow’s parent guide, which  is the only book on the market that brings parents into the process, rather than pushing them away. The book gives tips and insight into the admissions world to help parents get their teens started on their essays the right way.

 The Go To College Essay Resource 

Lifton and Knoppow are recognized national experts on the application essay; they speak all over the country and train counselors and consultants. Next stop: Lifton will moderate a college application presentation for high school counselors next month at the National Association for College Admissions Counseling’s annual meeting in Columbus, Ohio. Joining Wow on the panel — called Think Like A Writer to Better Help Your Students — will be senior admissions directors from Cornell, Amherst, the University of California – Berkeley and the University of Chicago.
