Call for Winning College Essays
« on: July 25, 2005, 06:33:33 AM »

I'm in the process of compiling a book on how to write the college essay. It will contain 101 college essays from students who were admitted to Ivy League schools.

This is a call for submissions. If you wrote an outstanding college essay and were subsequently admitted to an Ivy League school, and if you think that your essay made the difference in getting in, please email me your essay and 5-10 sentences on why you think your essay worked (and also include where attended/are attending college). Please indicate if you would like your name to be withheld from publication or if you would like your initials to be used instead of your full name.

If your essay is selected, you will serve as a model for high school students across the country who are looking for advice and a winning model for their personal statements. This is a great opportunity to be published and help students who recently went through the same college admissions process that you did.
