Learn How to Write a Winning College Essay with Sam Rosensohn of College Planning Partnerships








Sam Rosensohn is the founder of
College Planning Partnerships, a college prep
company known for extraordinary results.  


During this 90-minute workshop students will learn what college admission officers are looking to discover in an essay. Students will be offered tips to employ before they put pencil to paper and they will be encouraged to stand out by being themselves. We will discuss self-revelation, captivating openings, the element of surprise, time references, effective expression, direction and pace. It's no surprise that students postpone writing the college essay as they have little experience in writing honest autobiography that sells. Free for all participants.
