universities has come together to improve the college admission application
process for all students. The Coalition has developed a
of online tools to streamline the experience of applying to college. The initial

When it comes to writing, start with on outline. Most essays are best written in three parts: introduction, body, and conclusion. The introduction gives your reader an idea of your essay’s content. It should capture the reader’s attention. Many students start with one captivating sentence: “It was the worst day of my life.” The body should clearly support the theme with thoughtful evidence in a show vs. tell style. The conclusion should communicate the essence or point of the essay, and when appropriate, make a statement about the future.
