Nearly everyone applying to top schools has impressive grades and extracurriculars.

An application theme makes your accomplishments memorable — and shows admissions officers who you are beyond your achievements.

Tune into this webinar to hear from Sonam, a Former Duke Admissions Officer, about how to craft an application theme (or personal narrative) that truly elevates your candidacy for top colleges.

In this webinar, Sonam will cover:

  • What a personal narrative is and why it’s a crucial piece of a successful application
  • How to weave your personal narrative into your application to demonstrate intention and intellectual curiosity
  • Personal qualities and themes that admissions officers look for in the strongest candidates

Sonam will also share REAL student examples and answer your questions LIVE throughout the presentation!
