College Admissions Essays
College admission is contingent upon a triage of factors: grades, extracurriculars, and the personal statement. However, many students are unfamiliar with the the narrative essay genre, employed in the personal statements colleges require.
Harmony takes students through the process of identifying what personal qualities and interests they wish to communicate about themselves, and what "tropes" should be avoided. The next steps are brainstorming and crafting a story that will engage and impress admissions staff. Depending on the goals of the client, essays are tailored to meet the criteria for a private college with a unique application, the Common Application, California State University or UC applications.
