Editorial Reviews

Renee Rhoten
There were tips on what schools looked for as well as actual essays from students accepted into their respective programs. After reading those essays and understanding what was needed to get into school, I was pumped! I had to be creative, add a lot more color, and show the admissions committee who Renee really was and what she was all about. It only took a few hours to kick out the initial draft. And a couple of weeks in total to complete my essays after I had gotten started. -- BusinessWeek

If you think you know what we want and you are trying to write to that, forget about it. There is nothing more obvious, and more humiliating, than doing a bad job of being someone else. Just be yourself and let us do the deciding.

I bought this book looking for assistance in writing my personal essay. Was I disappointed. Unless you've held a job on Capitol Hill, are of 3-4 different ethnic decents, graduated from high school early with hundreds of advance placement credits already for college, served in the military, battled through a potentially terminal illness and spent years as a missionary in a third world country, all at the same time I might add, this book is of no assistance. There were all of 2-3 pages in the book that provided any insight as to what the admission council is looking for. Do yourself a favor, read those 2-3 pages in the bookstore - don't waste your money on this book.

This book was ok. I brought it during my senior year in college because I thought that it would give me some insight on how to approach my essay. I got better assistance from the professors at my school. If I had it to do over again, I would use other resources before I spent my hard earned money on this book.
