There are so many students with good grades, high scores and impressive extracurriculars. How can kids like this stand out from all of the others and get into their top choice schools?
We always talk about finding the personal narrative and how all of those accomplishments come together in context. But the most tangible manifestation of that narrative context is the personal statement. While grades and scores start looking the same to admissions officers, the essays, if they are written thoughtfully, can really differentiate an applicant.
A creative, engaging and memorable personal statement that makes the student likable is critical. Supplemental essays are also important for adding depth to what otherwise is just a line item on a resume (internships, awards, extracurriculars). If every essay reveals the good character of an applicant it’s impossible not to stand out.
