Storytelling and Your Application: Standing Out in the Admissions Process

About this webinar

"Stories affirm who we are, and allow us to experience the similarities between ourselves and others, real or imagined. Stories help us make meaning of our lives."

Each person has their own compelling story that conveys who they are. How do you tell yours when it comes to college applications? The story starts FAR before your application essays are drafted! You start writing your story the moment you start high school. Now is the time to start thinking about the ways to make your story strong, well before you apply.

How do you start brainstorming your story? What do you need to do to make your story stronger? How do you tell your story in an effective way to an admissions officer who will likely spend about 3 minutes reading your entire application? More than just helping you write a good story, we will use this session to help you plan out who you want to be by the time the story writing comes around.

Join us in this session to learn how to craft your high school journey, make your experiences shine, particularly when it comes to choosing your high school path and how that translates into college applications. Storytelling may be one of the most important skills you ever learn, both for college and beyond. Students of all ages, parents, and educators are welcome.

With decades of collective experience and hundreds of admits to the world’s top schools under our belts, Crimson’s talented staff of mentors, advisors, and counselors is here to help! We know what it takes to tell a story that will get admissions officers excited. In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to carve your path throughout high school around your passions and interests
  • Find out how top-ranked colleges use your personal statement and supplemental essay to evaluate your application
  • Learn how other parts of your application, such as your teacher recommendations, contribute to your story
  • Discuss how to start developing your profile from early on
