Hello students, parents and college essay enthusiasts! CEA is pleased to roll out a new series we’re calling the College Essay Link Roundup. It may not surprise you that in addition to helping our students brainstorm, edit and polish up the most fabulous college essays of all time, we also spend a lot of time reading news related to the college essay and keeping ourselves up-to-date on the ever-changing admissions process. When something particularly striking hits the news, we try to provide our own commentary on the CEA Blog, but it is not always possible to do an in-depth analysis of every piece of advice or news the internet has to offer. Still, we wouldn’t want you to miss out on any of this information in case you, like us, love nothing more than to read about year-to-year changes in admissions statistics and the thought process behind how colleges develop their essay questions. Forget The Fault In Our Stars – this is where the entertainment is. (Okay, fine, we loved that book too. Yes, it made us cry. A lot.)
So pour yourself a glass of lemonade and lay out on a lounge chair with your iPhone. It’s college essay link time.
