The College Essay Does Not Have to be Stressful

People ask me all the time, what's the most important or stressful part of the college application process? And most people would assume if the essay right, this great big personal essay that has to be perfect in order to be admitted to college. Yes, the essay is important. It's an opportunity, students, an opportunity for you to share with colleges who you are, what you think about what's going on in your life so that they get to know you better. But it shouldn't be stressful. It should be an opportunity.

So I would like you to think of it in layers. If you could take five days to write an essay, an introduction, two days to write the body, another day to write a conclusion, say three to five sentences each day, and then the last day to proofread, revise, I'm telling you, you can write something that's authentic to you, that colleges will appreciate but something you'll be proud of.

Now, in five days can you write a great essay? I truly believe so, but you must follow some steps. Stick around, go to and you'll learn more about how we can help you write a great essay in five days.
