Description
The formulaic approach of most college admissions essay guides doesn't apply seamlessly to all students--and worse yet, can teach them to sound ordinary. In this uber-competitive landscape, students are no longer looking for "essay in a day"-level advice. Mint Tutors founder Ashley Wellington's tailored advice empowers real students to craft higher-quality essays that will get them into Ivy-level institutions. By using common academic and extracurricular "types" to show students how to think through their essay ideas (why their approach might work, how it might fail, and how to highlight their best traits), this book replicates a brainstorming and editing session with a private tutor who knows how to dish out both encouragement and tough love--and get results.
