Ivy League Admissions Essays

Now is the time to be writing your Ivy League admissions essays! During the school year, you’re going to be inundated with work.

It’s August 17th. For those students applying to the Ivies, now is the time to be writing your Ivy League admissions essays! And for those students applying to other competitive universities not in the Ivy League, now is still the time to be writing your college admissions essays. In fact, you should be making some good progress by now because the school year is almost upon you.

By the time classes start, you’re going to be inundated with homework, exams, and papers that fill your time. You don’t want to be writing the most significant writing samples of your young adulthood while you’re busy doing all of your school work. The summer is the perfect time to be writing those Ivy League admissions essays. And there are lots of them. It’s not just the personal statement. It’s not just the most significant activity essay. There are supplemental essays to many highly competitive colleges – including Ivy League colleges. From the why college essay to the research essay to the short one-liners that you think might be meaningless (but are in fact far from it), this is your opportunity to share your personal story and to let college admissions counselors know just who you are.

So get started if you haven’t already done so. If you started but aren’t making much progress, the clock is ticking. Contact us today to help you get started so that we can help you showcase the best possible narratives to the admissions counselors evaluating your applications.
