Learning how to write Common App essays is not as hard as it seems. These prompts are all asking for personal information about you, what you have done, and how you have reacted to a variety of different situations in your life. While not everyone has been a captain of a team or created a killer app that sold millions of copies, these prompts are more interested in how you handled the situation and what you learned. This video is from a live seminar for my students, and I will show you how easy it is to write Common App essays from the prompts and let you use fictional storytelling devices to write about your story! Follow a few simple guidelines and you will be well on your way to an essay the colleges will love!
