Dear Niki:

We invite your students and their families to visit the University of California, Santa Cruz campus for one of our Fall Saturday Tours on October 29 or November 12, 2016.
This student-led campus tour event will provide prospective students with a general introduction to academic and campus opportunities. An Admissions presentation covering freshman and transfer admissions will be followed by a brief student panel and an all-walking campus tour.
Reservations must be made in advance online. We recommend that your students sign up as soon as possible, since the tours will fill up fast. (Please note that UC Santa Cruz will not be offering a Preview Day in fall 2016.)
Encourage your students to come see our beautiful campus and learn more about the exceptional academic experience and co-curricular opportunities that UC Santa Cruz offers! For students who cannot visit the campus this fall, we offer an online virtual tour in five languages.
Best wishes,
Office of Admissions

View this email in your browser

Hi all!

Remember that free 1-Hour Guide to the Personal Statement? Y'know, the step-by-step process with the Essence Objects, Values Exercise, and example essays?

Well, I messed around and created a version for the New UC Application. Why? Because I'm the College Essay Guy. It's what I do.

I think you'll find it useful.

Here's the deal: the UCs are looking for some very particular information (14 pieces of information, in fact), and the 8 new personal insight questions are intimately connected to these 14 points. That's why the guide includes:

  • A brief guide to the 14 points of comprehensive review (i.e. What the UCs are looking for)
  • (New!) Brainstorming exercises particular to the 8 (New!) personal insight questions (PIQs)
  • Tips for applying the Narrative and Montage structures to the PIQs
  • Example essays (like, really good ones)
  • A step-by-step guide to writing the UC activities list
  • Tips on the Additional Info section

And did I mention it was free?

The 1-Hour Guide to the New UC Application Prompts

"But Ethan!" I hear you say. "A great application takes longer than an hour! Don't you have anything that would help students actually finish the UC application? Like, maybe over a long weekend?

And could you do it next weekend?"


This online course will actually help students complete the UC Application…



In the words of my friend Shrek, "Really, really."

This 3-day course will teach you:

  • The Fastest Way to Find Your 4 UC Topics (And, if That Doesn't Work, Fine, Here Are 3 More Ways)
  • How to Stand Out if Your Topic is (Honestly) Kind of Cliché
  • Examples for and Analyses of All 8 Prompts
  • The Best Extracurricular Activity Brainstorm I've Ever Seen (or BEABIES for short)
  • 5 Ways Your UC Personal Insight Questions Should Differ from Your Common App Personal Statement
  • How to Write Real Good

Most of the content is brand new and will apply to other supplemental essays.

As always, the course is Pay-What-You-Can.

Forward this email.

Yeah, now. Life's short.

And the course starts in eight days.
