Better tales are there for the writing. This workshop will show you what admissions officers really look for in great college essays, and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories. We'll even share the five most over-used topics you must avoid and give you tips on how to start (and even finish) your essays this summer. Join Sara Kratzok, Director of Collegewise of Newton and graduate of Wellesley College and Harvard University, for this great workshop!
