New York Times on the College Application Essay: A Must Read

A terrific article with lots of great info and new ideas: a MUST READ (click here!) for those whose children are rising seniors and for the students themselves. Just do it. Writes NYT reporter Liebman: "Back in January, when I asked high school seniors to send in college application essays about money, class, working and the economy, I wasn’t sure what, if anything, would come in over the transom. But 66 students submitted essays, and with the help of Harry Bauld, the author of “On Writing the College Application Essay,” we’ve selected four to publish in full online and in part in this column."
