98% of scholarship applications end up in the trash because of a couple dozen common mistakes. And if that weren't bad enough, it turns out scholarship judges are just as tired, frazzled, cranky and prejudiced as the rest of us. If you actually think you're gonna win scholarship money, you'd better know EXACTLY the kind of stuff that guys like Judge Josh hate to see in a scholarship application. Josh Barsch has given over $100,000 of his own money to scholarship winners since 2003, and he wrote this book to help you join the 2% of applicants who actually win scholarship money. **Includes over 100 pages of real-life essays with instructional commentary by the author.**

Writing an amazing college admission essay is easier than you think! So you're a high school senior given the task of writing a 650-word personal statement for your college application. Do you tell the story of your life, or a story from your life? Do you choose a single moment? If so, which one? The options seem endless. Lucky for you, they're not. College counselor Ethan Sawyer (aka The College Essay Guy) will show you that there are only four (really, four!) types of college admission essays. And all you have to do to figure out which type is best for you is answer two simple questions: 1. Have you experienced significant challenges in your life? 2. Do you know what you want to be or do in the future? With these questions providing the building blocks for your essay, Sawyer guides you through the rest of the process, from choosing a structure to revising your essay, and answers the big questions that have probably been keeping you up at night: How do I brag in a way that doesn't sound like bragging? and How do I make my essay, like, deep? Packed with tips, tricks, exercises, and sample essays from real students who got into their dream schools, College Essay Essentials is the only college essay guide to make this complicated process logical, simple, and (dare we say it?) a little bit fun.
