Get a Head Start on 2017-18 College Essays!

It’s that time of the year again! Incoming high school seniors are starting to (or have started) creating their college lists and writing college essays. College applications will likely consume them throughout the remainder of this year. 

 If you are an incoming high school senior (or the parent of one), you will be creating a cohesive story out of all your work over the past few years and scoping out your chances of being accepted into your top choice colleges. The process of filling out college applications is a long one, so why not get a head start?

The same process applies to other supplemental essays – students should always remember to rationally self-reflect about how they and the designated school can mutually benefit. Below is a list of all the essay release dates for some popular colleges.

There is an abundance of essays out there – schools such as Stanford, Harvard, and USC are still yet to be released. 

 Example: Johns Hopkins University Essay Prompt

Successful students at Johns Hopkins make the biggest impact by collaborating with others, including peers, mentors, and professors. Talk about a time, in or outside the classroom, when you worked with others and what you learned from the experience. (up to 400 words)

In this case, the applicant should take a step back and research about how previous or current John Hopkins’ students have created something out of their unique experiences that are related to the particular fields that this university specializes in.
