Our eBook contains almost 23 successful essays from Harvard, Yale, UPenn, Duke, Cambridge, Oxford and more written by Crimson students from all over the world. From flipping burgers to building an IKEA bookshelf - read how each student explored their personal voice. Here’s just a taste of the topics they covered:
This successful Yale applicant wrote about growing up on a river boat in London, where it was more “commonplace to know a pirate than a banker.”
This New Zealand student, who was accepted to both Harvard and Yale, examined the meaning of the Kiwi Dream and the importance of inclusivity.
This Cambridge University Economics admit, explored how her dream of pursuing economics was motivated by her research into the critical role of economic policy in global welfare.
Crimson’s work with students is centered on the premise of individual attention and taking real time to support each applicant in preparing the perfect personal statement for them.
The statement is the centerpiece of both the US and the UK application process - so it is important that your essay showcases your academic aspirations (UK), or communicates a story which demonstrates who you are and what matters to you (US).
Our essay mentors work with their students closely for eight or more months to produce the best personal statements possible. They help each student showcase their academic rigour and explore their unique personal voice.
