As the number of applicants to selective colleges has soared, many of these schools no longer grant personal on-campus interviews. The written essay has become a critical factor in deciding whether or not to admit a student. Even the most talented students experience anxiety when faced with drafting this now all-important essay.
In this step-by-step guide, Howard and Matthew Greene once again help students realize their educational dreams by explaining the vital importance of the presentation factor, with chapters on the magnitude of the personal application, including the personal essay; an activity-filled resume; and a portfolio of one's work in a variety of talents and skills. Helpful sample essays from real students among the thousands the Greenes have advised in such varied areas as art, music, science, and athletics help students understand what works on paper, as well as essays from students who had to overcome such serious obstacles as learning disabilities.
