In summer, we provide rising seniors tips on creating an outstanding common app personal statement and supplemental essays. Because summer is a great time to start writing—you’ll have time to reflect, get creative, and save yourself from managing the last-minute application work during fall of senior year.

Join and start your writing with Dr. Laird and Ms.Thuy Rocco, for an in-person 1.5 day of hands-on, practical, action-packed sessions:

Day 1: Common App Personal Statement, UCs Personal Infight Questions

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • The Purpose of the Personal Statement (i.e., What colleges are looking for)
  • 7 Steps of the essay writing process
  • Brainstorming: Fun Ways to Find Your Personal Statement Topic
  • How to make my common topic uncommon: Dos and Don’ts
  • Q&A : On any topic you would like to ask on common application essays

Day 2: College Supplemental Essays

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • Types of supplemental essays
  • How to do research for “why college” essay
  • How to write “why major” essay
  • What is community contribution and how to approach my experience in writing? 
  • Overview of other supplemental essays: diversity, leadership, values of the specific college, etc.
After the boot camp, students are expected to send us their drafts, and we will provide feedback on up to three drafts of personal statements to complete their essays. 

Expected outcomes: Personal Statement completion, three supplemental essays
