Instructors: Mindy Pollack Fusi and Jamie Reynolds Usher
Calling all rising seniors! Don’t wait until fall college application deadlines approach and wonder what to create for your personal statement/essay. Be prepared by spending only one week (half days) this summer learning the do’s and don’ts of the essay and creating yours! You will receive help on all essay aspects, from developing a strong topic to completing the essay. Join fellow rising seniors and popular College Application Essay Coach Mindy Pollack Fusi and her new assistant Jamie Usher as they teach you insider tips and a foolproof technique on how to choose your topic. From there, you will draft your essay and receive feedback. After revising the essay, you will evaluate feedback again—several times. You will polish your essay until you have a completed statement that is concise yet creative and authentic. This workshop will help you break through fear and frustration, guide you to the finish, and help you relax in fall when your essay is done! Class size limited to ten students – Rising Seniors Only! Class meets August 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.
* Students must have Google Docs on their home computers for this class.
