Believe it or not, there's joy - yes, joy - to be found in writing your college essays.  

While most students procrastinate until the last minute and treat these essays as a chore, we'd like to show you a better way to approach your college essays.

At this session, we will analyze the prompts, including:

  1. The biggest mistakes San Diego students make and how to avoid them
  2. The top Do's and Don'ts for the new UC and Common App essay prompts
  3. Sample essays that work (and don't)
