How to Approach College Application Essays

On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, we examined two types of essays in college applications. The first was the Common Application Essay and the second was the Artist Statement


  • What a personal and artist statement is

  • Tips on how to write a good essay

  • Essay prompts (2020-2021)

  • Don’t delete any scraps from writing -- you can always use it for another essay

  • Ask multiple people to give you feedback on your essays -- Andy can help you with this too.

Note from Andy about essay resources and examples:

A couple of you made great recommendations last Tuesday about sharing resources and examples for college application essays. Below are some links that I am happy to share (even within these links are other links to resources):
