What do colleges want in an application essay? How should students begin the writing process? What's a good topic? A bad topic? How can students make their essays unique and memorable? During this presentation, we'll find out the answers to these questions and more.

Presented by:

Sharon Epstein, an award-winning writer and college consultant. Her background includes 20 years in communications, two Emmy nominations, and a Writers Guild Award.

Matthew Dempsey, Assistant Director of Admission at Fairfield University, will share a first-hand account of the role of the admission counselor, read examples of essays that have and haven't worked, and talk about how essays are viewed in the context of the entire application.

This program is intended for high school students and their families.
