-Discern what you'll add to their campus; do you fit?
-How well do you write?

We are experts at teaching you how to tap into your inner voice that needs to be heard.

What you'll do:

-Learn the in's and out's of the process
-In depth examination of amazing essays
-Multiple exercises to find what you value & how to express it
-Leave with a choice of topic & which prompt it fits
