You can get into the perfect school! Let the College Essay Guy take the stress out of writing your college admission essay and give you direction on every part of the admissions process.

College Essay Essentials
Packed with brainstorming activities, college personal statement samples and more, this book provides a clear, stress-free roadmap to writing your best admission essay.

Writing a college admission essay doesn't have to be stressful. College counselor Ethan Sawyer (aka The College Essay Guy) will show you that there are only four (really, four!) types of college admission essays. And all you have to do to figure out which type is best for you is answer two simple questions:

  1. Have you experienced significant challenges in your life?
  2. Do you know what you want to be or do in the future?

With these questions providing the building blocks for your essay, Sawyer guides you through the rest of the process, from choosing a structure to revising your essay, and answers the big questions that have probably been keeping you up at night: How do I brag in a way that doesn't sound like bragging? and How do I make my essay, like, deep?

College Essay Essentials will help you with:

  • The best brainstorming exercises
  • Choosing an essay structure
  • The all-important editing and revisions
  • Exercises and tools to help you get started or get unstuck
  • College admission essay examples

Inside College Admission Essentials you'll find:

Packed with tips, tricks, exercises, and sample essays from real students who got into their dream schools, College Essay Essentials is the only college essay guide to make this complicated process logical, simple, and (dare we say it?) a little bit fun.
