Free College Essay Writing Seminar for Juniors

From the College Essay Guy

I'm leading a two-part webinar series for juniors next week packed with tips on how to create an outstanding personal statement and college application. Why? Because summer is a great time to start writing—you'll have time to dig deep, get creative, and save yourself a whole bunch of potential stress during fall of senior year. Join me and Tom Campbell, CEG's Community Manager and former Pomona College admissions officer, for two practical, action-packed sessions:
