To get the attention of a college admissions committee, the student essay must be interesting, provocative, and articulate! Led by SSSAS Director of College Counseling Dr. Michael Carter, this one-week course gives students the opportunity to discuss and choose suitable topics for future college application essays that reflect their individuality and their writing skills. Essays prepared in this class can be used in the fall to satisfy the requirement for a personal essay required by many college applications. No academic credit is provided.
