Not The Same Old Formula
We’ve reviewed countless essays written by students (and sometimes parents!), and realistically, it’s always the same formula:
- Hook the audience by beginning the story at a tense moment of emotional or physical jeopardy.
- Flashback to how they got here in the first place, and sprinkle in some emotional development along the way.
- Flash forward to how they triumphed despite all odds.
Tell Your Story
Do you know who else has seen this formula countless times?
The admissions department at every single university in the country. They’re the same stories they see 40,000 times per year – every year.
If you want your child to tell their real story then they need a unique take on the same events that hundreds (if not thousands) of students are writing about this application season.
