Essay Workshop with Harry Hu

March 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm JST

According to a survey by the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, over 80% of U.S. Universities consider the college essay to be of moderate to significant importance when evaluating applicants. The value of the essay is only going to increase as more schools become test optional and admissions officers are seeking more personalized evidence to differentiate one excellent applicant from another. Yet it is also easily the single most challenging part of the already overwhelming college application process. 

96% of students who work with our essay counseling team receive an offer from one of their top three university choices. So come join us for an evening with Harry Hu, one of the directors of our admissions consulting division, as he provides insight and guidance on how to:

  • Decide which of the 7 Common App essay prompts are the best fit for you
  • Brainstorm the perfect topic for your main essay and supplements
  • Quickly eliminate the potential stories that are too generic, cliche, or risky
  • Understand what admissions officers are really looking for and how to craft your narrative accordingly
  • Take a decent idea and turn it into a captivating narrative that will help you stand out in an incredibly competitive applicant field  

The best stories take time. For college applications, this can be anywhere from 20-40 hours minimum. Sign up below to register for our event and come learn how to get started on that process, and how Tokyo Academics can help ensure that your Common App Essay is anything but common.
