WRITE Now - Jacki Skole

Your College Essay Writing Coach

College application essays are stories. The best are engaging, insightful, revealing. They are well told. Today, essays are playing an increased role in admissions decisions because they clue in colleges to the student behind the grades and test scores.

I’ve spent my career telling true stories. Now, I’m helping students tell theirs.

If you’re applying to college, tell your story.

COVID-19 Update: The Class of 2021 faced an unprecedented application season, and it looks likely the Class of 2022 will face its own challenges. But among the many things we learned, this remains unchanged: Essays matter more than ever.
