Writing the College Application Personal Essay Workshop (grade 12 students)

June 20 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

June 20 – 23, 2023

9:00AM – 12:00PM at UCLA


Angie Yi

This four-day workshop welcomes soon-to-be twelfth graders—who are thinking about that personal statement colleges are looking forward to reading. In this workshop, students will try their hand at a variety of application topics, explore the role of style (not just what you say but how you say it), and analyze sample personal statements. They’ll draft, share, revise, edit. By the end of the four-day workshop, students will have several “starts” as well as a revised draft of a personal statement.

Fee: $400

We are able to offer a limited number of needs-based scholarships.
