College essays are the hardest part of the college application, and they are the one element that you can truly make a difference right up to the very end. Your grades are your grades, and your test scores are set, but your essays are all up to you!
With students applying to ever more colleges each year, students can find themselves on the hook to write dozens of essays. How do you make them stand out when you have so much to do? Ivy Caliber Essays will teach you how to organize your applications, brainstorm, outline, and write the fewest possible essays so you can focus on your most compelling stories and draft your best work.
Sarah Ballard, author of Accepted! A Monthly Guide to College Applications and Admissions to Any School and Founder of college coaching firm Alpha Academia, has crafted this course to teach students how to sell themselves to colleges through their essays.
Ivy Caliber Essays walks you through the process step-by-step:
Ivy Caliber Essays uses video sessions with embedded notes to walk through a complete process for writing all of your college (and scholarship!) applications. Links to outside resources and sample essays are included. Worksheets are available for download to supplement the lectures.
In short, Ivy Caliber Essays is everything you need to put your best foot forward on your college essays with the least possible pain.
