Our Next Event

08/20/2014 - 7:00pm

Everyone says so: "Back in the day, applying to college was so much easier."

These days, it can be like mounting a presidential campaign. Many factors have contributed to the madness, but once families understand the different components of the process, it is more manageable. Noted author Elizabeth Benedict and her company Don't Sweat the Essay specialize in helping students create application essays that work, whether students need help only with the Common Application essay or a dozen or more that are sometimes required, depending on each school's requirements. Clients routinely get into first-choice schools, including Harvard, Yale, Brown, UMass, Skidmore, etc. Elizabeth also reviews applications, advises families on college selection, and works with a test prep company, ArborBridge, that helps students around the world through innovative software.

Elizabeth, a highly regarded, bestselling novelist, journalist, editor, and long-time professor of writing at leading colleges and universities, will share her wisdom in a lively 45-minute discussion, with plenty of time for questions and answers. She will offer books to consult and practical tips for parents and students. She writes about these issues frequently for Huffington Post. Please visit her website for more information: http://DontSweatTheEssay.com
