How to Write Your College Application Essays

College application essays have become more important this application season, especially now that many colleges may not have test scores for applicants. What are colleges really looking for in your application essays?  Having trouble coming up with a topic?  How has Covid-19 affected the college application essays?  

This workshop will give you the answers about what colleges are looking for in their application essays. Teens will participate in brainstorming exercises designed to help decide their choice of topics for the Common Application essay. We will also examine how to answer the  supplemental questions including the popular "WHY US?" questions used by so many colleges and the new essay about the impact of Covid-19.

Debbie Gershow Lindell is the founder and director of Student Express, an organization that provides information and support for families going through the college application process.  She is a New York State certified school guidance counselor with over 15 years of experience working in schools.

For teens and parents
