Publisher Comments:

What does an admissions officer look for in a college application essay?

You. It's that simple. There's no formula, no trick, no strategy, says Harry Bauld, a former Ivy League admissions officer. But with acceptance rates at all-time lows, just being yourself in an essay means understanding your readers and the unique form in which you are writing. In this fully revised and updated edition of the classic guide to writing the best essay of your life, Bauld reveals the big clichés (The Trip, The Jock, Miss America, Pet Death) and helps you discover ways to come alive on the page as a real person instead of applicant number 13,791.

Synopsis:

A newly revised edition of a perennial favorite, On Writing the College Application Essay by Harry Bauld—formerly an admissions officer at Brown University and assistant director of admissions at Columbia University—is an insiders guide to writing a college application essay that will stand out from the pack.

Synopsis:

Vital information for every college applicant. A former Ivy League admissions officer provides tough and funny advice on coming up with the best essay possible.

Synopsis:

With reliable, lightly delivered advice, Bauld shows the student how to come alive on paper with an honest, entertaining essay that will stand apart from the rest.
