A lot of greatkids write average college essays—essays about “life lessons learned from football” or “how my trip to Europe broadened my cultural horizons." Better tales are there for the writing. This workshop will show you what admissions officers really look for in great collegeessays, and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories. We'll even share the five most over-used topics you must avoid and give you tips on how to start (and even finish) your essays this summer. Join Abby van Geldern, of Collegewise Newton and former college admissions counselor at RPI, for this greatworkshop. For teens and adults. Register online.
