Greetings from Prompt!
Thank you for signing up for our weekly newsletter! This summer and fall we will be focusing on the ins and outs of the college application process.
If you are like us when we applied to college, you most likely haven’t started writing your college applications yet. Bad idea. Do you think Charles Dickens wrote his Tale of Two Cities in two days? No. It was written in pieces over four years. Your college application is your masterpiece: your first chance to prove yourself to the world. Stop procrastinating now. Thankfully, Prompt is here to help guide you along the way!
The best time to start writing your applications is now. After all, it is summer and you likely will have more time now than you will have this fall. We recommend starting with the essay, easily the single most important part of your application. Fortunately, many of the essay prompts have already been released including those for the Common Application. Now is the time to get a leg up on the other applicants and get into your dream school!
Get started by taking a look at our Writing Center article on How to Select Your Essay Prompt for the Common Application. In it you will find a guide to help you select your prompt and start thinking about your essay’s content. If this strikes your fancy and you want to get started right away, download our eBook to gain knowledge about how to write your essay (if you have not downloaded it already).
Don’t perseverate. Once you’ve written your essay’s first draft, submit it to Prompt for feedback on the content, structure, and flow of thought of your writing along with grammar and word choice. Your 650-word essay is only $28 for feedback in 48 hours or $37 for feedback in 6 hours (any day, any time). Use the promotion code in our FREE EBOOK, Constructing Your College Application, to get $10 off.
Best of luck with the college application process! We’ll be in touch next week!
