The personal essay counts for 30% of your overall application to US universities. Admissions Officers spend approximately 15 minutes reading your entire application and most of that is spent on your essays.
It’s often the most challenging part of a US university application for an international student. The writing style, tone and topic are vastly different from the UK personal statement meaning extra preparation is vital.
You also have the added requirement of supplemental essays which are different for each university you apply to. A lot of writing is required in the US admissions process and the summer of Year 12 is the perfect time to start.
Join Former UChicago Admissions Officer and Crimson Strategist, Steve Han, in our webinar all about US essays.
There will be a live Q&A at the end of this webinar, so bring your questions to the table!
Applying to top US universities is a difficult and stressful task which is why so many students seek external support.
Each of our programmes are tailored to the student and are delivered by a carefully selected team of mentors who provide focussed support with each and every aspect of the process - from university selection to essay writing and SAT preparation.
By signing up for this webinar you will get a 1:1 university strategy meeting for you and your child with one of our expert Academic Advisors. They will review your child’s academic and extracurricular profile, provide tailored guidance as to suitable university pathways and outline what they need to do to achieve their goals.
