Attend a Webinar

We get it. There’s a lot happening right now, and a lot of swirling questions about what this all means. We got you covered. We're sharing free resources by hosting webinars, all to help you navigate the pressing questions and the rapidly changing admissions landscape. And, we’ll continue to remind you of all that isn’t changing and what you can control.

As a reminder, our webinars are free, but space is limited. The good news is that if you can't make it live, a recording of all webinars will be available to all registrants for up to two weeks after the event. We hope to see you at one of the following webinars!


How to Write a Great College Essay
Wednesday, October 7 • 5 PM PDT/8 PM EDT 
A lot of really good kids write really bad college essays; essays about how soccer taught them the importance of teamwork, or how they struggled to adapt to strange cultures during a trip to Paris. It’s not their fault; most kids have just never been taught what college admissions officers actually want to read about, or that great college essays need to be written very differently from the essays assigned in high school English classes. That’s why we created this seminar—to teach kids how to find and write their best stories for college essays. We’ll explain what admissions officers actually want (and don’t want) to read, reveal the five most overused essay topics on which far too many kids rely, and teach writing techniques that will help any student write more engaging and effective college essays.
