Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The college admissions essay offers students their only opportunity to show colleges their unique voice. As a result, essays can make or break an application package. As competition for admission to top colleges continues to rise, the quality of application essays is becoming increasingly more important to admissions counselors. In fact, the essay portion of the college application is the best opportunity for students to differentiate themselves from other candidates and gain admission into their top choice school. As the emphasis shifts away from test scores and class rank to a more wholistic approach to candidate assessment, admissions essays are more important than ever. LearningExpress has created an all-inclusive guide with interactive activities to help even the most tentative writer find a voice and create a top-notch piece. Write Your Way into College: College Admissions includes: Unique integration of the ability to write two full length essays online that are automatically graded using a commonly used admissions scoring rubric Quotes throughout from college admissions counselors telling readers what they actually look for when reading admissions essays 5 full-length sample essays of differing quality with thorough critique of each: 1 top-quality, 3 middle-quality, and 1 bottom-quality Sidebars throughout explaining unfamiliar terms A questionnaire to help students think of good essay topics Checklists to guide students away from common errors The college application can be an overly stressful process however; it does not have to be this way. With the right preparation and sufficient time management skills, future college bound students can learn to create an essay that will help capture their voice, their interests, and the very essence of their being. Even though writing does not come easily to every person, LearningExpress's Write Your Way into College: College Admissions can help make the process a little more natural for those students who are willing to put the time and effort into perfecting their writing skills. Write Your Way into College: College Admissions can be a supplementary guide to the information and guidance that students often receive from their high school teachers. The book is so compact and tiny that it allows the students to travel with it anywhere and constantly work on bettering their skills. This book also helps students develop their own unique writing prompt and idea - a part that oftentimes proves most difficult for student writers. This effective tool not only helps students learn the writing skills necessary for creating beautiful written pieces, but it also provides them with the opportunity to develop a unique written voice, effectively express themselves, and ultimately gain admission to their school of choice.
