common app essay help, college counseling, educational consultantMany applications ask for an essay about why the applicant wants to attend that particular school. While applicants can and should reuse portions of essays on multiple applications, the “why us” essay requires an original response.   Admissions readers do not like hearing about their school’s ideal location or the beauty of the campus. Rather, they want to hear something unique the applicant appreciates about the school.
This requires some research about the school. The best place to research is on the school’s website. Conversations with admissions counselors and current students are also helpful.  For terrific advice on how to ace this essay, please click here.
