Choosing the Best Topics for Your Personal Insight Answers
UC Personal Insights
For both transfers and freshmen, the Personal Insights include four essay answers (one required and 3 chosen from a list). My services include extensive brainstorming to bring out talent, skill, and leadership ideas you might not have thought of, ultimately steering you to the best topics per answer and the best focus to ideally cover the values embraced by the UC.
Common App, Private Universities and all other colleges
After having initially only worked with UC essays, these last few years have seen me branch out to the elite universities, and with it has come exciting success. I can be a hard task master but the results are clear to see, and my students are thrilled with what they accomplish in the essays, and most importantly, along with their scores, hard work and leadership, they get in!
I approach all essays in a specific manner: first, a questionnaire students return, then digging deep during brainstorming, followed by a breadcrumb path as to the main points, and then draft after draft and maybe a return to brainstorming. The focus is always on giving a situation wings, usually a small situation, one that highlights the students’ growth, while also taking into account the unique points that complement that university. My background is as a journalist, screenwriter and marketer. I understand how to position an essay for best affect.
