Essay Writing Workshop Date: June 4th, 2019

Time: 1:00PM - 4:00PM

Location: 790 Austin Street, Houston TX 77006 - Room TBA


Topics Include:

  • How to grab the reader's attention immediately and keep them engrossed in your essay to the very end.
  • Avoiding the "Eye-Rollers"- how to keep the admissions officer from picking up your folder and rolling his or her eyes when he or she reads your essay. Most students don't have a clue how to avoid this, but you will... ;)
  • The top five things to avoid if you want to keep your application out of the thousands of eliminated files that are strewn annually across the floor of the admissions office while waiting for the shred bin.
  • Learning to trust your own "voice" (you need to understand this) and tell your story in a way that lets the admissions officer know who you are, and that you are not just another GPA or SAT/ACT score.
  • Tips and Tricks to help ensure that your essay is the one they pass around the admissions committee (for all the right reasons).

Each attendee will receive a copy of On Writing the College Application Essay by Harry Bauld.
