Student who got Great College Advice on essays talks about his experience

Stressed college student tired of hard learning with books in exams tests preparation, overwhelmed high school teen girl exhausted with difficult studies or too much homework, cram concept

Rob worked with Mark Montgomery on his college essay to make sure they were the best they could be. He reflects on the process in this video.

I think writing the essay was the hardest part, because it’s more than just putting 650 words on the paper. I think that writing the essay, you have to be confident about what you’re writing about. You can’t just BS the process. It’s a process in which you need to know exactly what you want to write about yourself and how you want to portray yourself, and so… I started off, I think, with a very inadequate perception of what the essay was gonna be about. But I think, with Mark’s help, I was able to understand that the essay, the importance of the essay, and how to develop a good essay that was going to explain myself, my thoughts, to the college in the best way possible. And I think, though it was, I would say, the hardest part of the college experience, I think, you know, having the help of a college counselor was very beneficial to my process.
