Do you know the value of the essay in your college application? Do you know how to take your Common App essay to the next level? Do you know how to separate yourself from the thousands of students applying to your top-choice school? Fortunately, Dr. Donna Kirschner does!
As an admissions essay coach, Dr. Kirschner combines her research as an anthropologist at the University of Pennsylvania with her training as a writing coach at Penn to help her students tell amazing stories through their college essays, and she shares her insights in this episode. In fact, she brought so much value that I had to split our interview into two parts!
Part one is all mindset: how you should think about the college essay, how to see deeper layers of the prompt and your response, and how a coach can help pull those rich experiences out of you.
Part two is “how-to,” as Dr. Kirschner details her writing process and along with important perspectives on working with a coach, the unique position of parents in college essay writing, and what to do with supplemental essays.
