Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

October 14th 2021: Why We Hate the Costco Essay; Early Deadlines; Merit Scholarships

A few years ago, an essay with Costco at its center made the media circuit as an example of a powerful and successful college essay. We don’t like it, and we’re going to share why. The Merit Scholarship program gets a lot of attention for what is essentially a $2k award. But there are some other financial opportunities that can come with the Merit program, and we have information for you on that. Finally, the early deadlines—priority, early decision, and early action—are here, and we’ll help you make sure you’re ready to submit.
