While grades and test scores are important, the personal essay is a key factor in determining who gets in, and who doesn't. There's no set formula for writing a great essay because the best essays are as unique as the individuals who write them. The essay that will impress the reviewer must be original, focused, and structured. Style counts. Word choice matters. And every comma has to be in the right place.
Applying to college can be stressful for both students and parents. Thetaworks counselors facilitate this process by meeting with students, getting to know them, and helping them to reflect upon their backgrounds and accomplishments and clearly articulate their interests and goals. Utilizing an organic process of guiding students through brainstorming exercises, the coaches collaborate with students to help them identify meaningful, personal topics for the main Common Application essay and school-specific supplemental essays.
Packages on this page are specifically for essays, but more comprehensive programs can be found here.
