The College Essay Collection from Ethan Sawyer

The College Essay Collection from Ethan Sawyer

For our newest collection of assignments we’ve partnered with Ethan Sawyer, better known as ‘The College Essay Guy’, to bring a guided instructional experience that helps all students master their personal statement. Ethan is a nationally recognized college essay expert and the author of the Amazon bestsellers College Essay Essentials and College Admission Essentials. Each year he and his team reach more than one million students and counselors through the College Essay Guy blog, online courses, workshops, books, and one-on-one work.

The personal statement is just that: personal, which is why we’ve created a ‘choose your own adventure’ style experience that is able to support every student on their journey to the perfect college essay. The first step on this adventure is to choose one of three possible writing paths: a montage essay, a narrative essay, or a non-guided approach that allows the student to write from a chosen prompt. For an optimal essay we suggest choosing the montage or narrative path.
