It's easy to find advice on the college application essay.
In this book, however, you'll get advice that is much more valuable. You'll learn about the most common mistakes applicants make when writing their college essays. You'll learn about topics and writing styles that seem alluring, or even expected, but will actually hurt your chances of acceptance.
By learning about these common mistakes, you'll learn how to write a truly unique essay that will convey to college admissions officers who you really are as a person (which is all they really want). You'll learn how to set yourself apart from all the other applicants, and how to show admissions officers exactly why you belong at their school.
Written by an Ivy League grad, private college counselor and one of the co-founders of Collegica.com, The College Essay Trap is required reading for applicants who are serious about getting into the colleges on their list.
"A remarkably useful short book to read and keep handy. The College Essay Trap offers as nifty and insightful a set of advice as I've come across. As someone who has read tens of thousands of such essays over the years, I found my self nodding in strong agreement with each "trap" [Nichols] describes and how best to avoid it." - Fred Hargadon, Former Dean of Admissions at Princeton, Stanford and Swarthmore.
