Everything You Need to Rock the UC Application

Some good reading.....
www.collegeessayguy.com
View this email in your browser

It's Nov. 2 and most Early Action/Deadlines are behind us. You can relax. 

For like, a minute. 

Time to shift into 2nd (or 16th) gear for the UC application.

Stressed? Don't worry.

Here's Everything You Need to Rock the UC Application:

1. A Brief (and Fun) Guide to the 14-Points of Comprehensive Review
Spoiler: The UCs are looking for some specific stuff. Don't try and guess what that stuff is.

2. How to Write Your UC Activities List
Spoiler: Emphasize tangible, measurable impact using sentence fragments and specific numbers. 

3. Free 1-Hr Guide to the Personal Insight Question (PIQ)s
Spoiler: A boring PIQ uses a common topic, common connections, and common language. But a stand-out PIQ uses an uncommon topic, uncommon connections, and uncommon language. 


Let's do this,
Ethan
