Description

1. Writing your essay doesn't have to be stressful.

Every fall, thousands of aspiring students just like you spend hours staring at a computer screen, searching for a clever opening line or a life-changing experience. It doesn't have to be that hard!

2. Counselors want to learn about you-and that's all!

A good essay does not need to be a literary masterpiece or a scholarly treatise worthy of James Joyce. The best essays come from high school students being themselves, with all the depth, wit, charm, and quirkiness you bring to your daily life. We show you how.

3. So let your best come through!

College-admission experts Edward B. Fiske and Bruce G. Hammond give you all the advice you need for an application essay that will open the door to the college of your choice. Fiske Real College Essays That Work includes effective examples from real applicants-some natural writers, others who struggled to find a topic-and describes how to take your essay from initial draft to final submission.

Real essays on these topics and more:

Athletics.

Arts.
