Aleks goes over how to lay out the key information of your application and essay writing on a tracker so that nothing is forgotten and you can create your best resume and essay. I loved her tips on figuring out if you’re answering the prompts by asking people.

Dr. Aviva Legatt is an elite college admissions consultant, coach, and professional speaker whose mission is to empower every generation’s leaders to maximize their impact and achieve their goals.

Dr. Shirag Shemmassian is the founder of Shemmassian Academic Consulting and a nationally-recognized college admissions expert. Over 90% of his students get into at least one of their top 3 schools using his data-driven, student-centered approach.

Shirag goes over how to create a memorable essay. He mentions tips on how to close the loop in your essay and personalize the writing to you. Keep in mind you do not want to just follow the tropes of “successful” essay writing.

Susan shares the real purpose of college essays and shares her expert tips and tricks to make them shine. Admissions committees are not looking to grade the essay they are looking to gain insights into who the student is, beyond what can be determined from the rest of the application.

Peter Peng is the founder of Young Prodigy. He is a full-time essay specialist, college counselor, and test prep strategist.

Peter goes over why he doesn’t recommend writing essays about your biggest challenges or largest accomplishments. Instead he recommends writing your essay about everyday occurrences to showcase yourself.
