Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

October 05th 2017:Office Hours: UC Essays; Scholarships with Fall Deadlines

The University of California system has its own application that takes a slightly different approach than the Common Application. Instead of one primary essay, the UC app offers eight prompts for students to choose from when writing the four shorter required essays. In this week’s Office Hours, we’ll go through all eight prompts and talk through suggestions for approaching each of them. The general rule of thumb with scholarship searches is to start early! For those of you who didn’t take that advice, we have suggestions for scholarships with deadlines through the end of the year.
