    nice! have any of you guys started writing your essays?
  • Kali22Kali22 Registered User Posts: 575 Member
    Hello! H.S 2012er here :)

    If you guys haven't started writing or brainstorming your essays yet, you should get started! I can't stress enough how important your writing is. If you're having trouble getting an idea of how the college essay should be written, I'd highly recommend any version of 50 Successful Harvard Application Essays. Not because it's "Harvard's," but because it has actual, well written essays by accepted students, and it offers a brief summary on strengths and weaknesses following each essay. It's really a great source, and it certainly helped me.

    If you guys have any questions, feel free to hit me up!
