COLLEGE PREP WORKSHOPS!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 7-8pm: How to Write a College Essay that Stands Out (CLICK TO REGISTER)

Selective college admission feels more competitive than ever. Come join Christina Hamilton, Founder of Intuitive Education Partners, to learn how to write a college essay that stands out from the rest. Christina has worked in selective college admissions for thirteen years and read thousands of college essays, and now works with students and families to guide them through the application process. Christina will go over tips and tricks for writing the college essay, covering everything from brainstorming strategies to Do’s and Don’ts. Christina will also address the nuances of supplemental essays, demonstrated interest, and trends in college admissions during the pandemic.

 

Tuesday, August 16th, 7-8pm: Selective College Admissions & Finding Your Fit (CLICK TO REGISTER)

The pandemic has added a layer of uncertainty to everything, and college admission is no exception. Join us for a discussion on selective college admissions, and how to stand out in the process. Christina will discuss trends in higher education, building your college list, timelines for the college application process, and tips and tricks for best representing yourself to selective institutions. This session will cover demonstrated interest, interviews, essays, Early Decision, Early Action, and more!

Making Your Common App Less Common - A Webinar with Collegewise

The Common Application gives you a lot of opportunities to tell your story in a way that admissions directors will find compelling. We don’t like to have missed opportunities on an application, so we’ll go through each part of the Common App and show you where you can inject your personality and where you can protect your shortcomings. We’ll also share how admission officers use the information you give them to make admission decisions.
