What is it?
It’s a six-part online course that students and counselors have been asking me about for like three years. My goal is to provide you (or your student) the resources you need to complete not only the Common App, but also the supplemental essays that most highly selective schools require. Through the live 30-min. Q&A sessions with me after each session and homework assignments each night, you should be able to get a whole lot done. In a week.

What makes this webinar series special?
It’s the only workshop of its kind. And because I think you’ll find it:
- inspiring: you’ll be writing right away
- efficient: you’ll learn a lot fast
- practical: you’ll get a step-by-step map
- comprehensive: you won’t find this range of essays covered anywhere else
What's the difference between the Student and Counselor version?
There's a big difference between writing something awesome yourself (as a student) and helping someone else write something awesome (as a counselor.)
Though some of the content overlaps, the counselor version is geared specifically to helping counselors with the unique struggles they face in guiding students through writing the most common supplemental essays. The student version is tailored to the unique struggles they go through in writing these essays.
The SIX-part course includes:
- (5) LIVE 1-hr Lessons taught by me, Ethan
- (5) LIVE 30-min. daily Q&A Sessions--so you can ask me your specific essay questions or have your essays reviewed (that’s 7.5 hrs of live Ethan-time)
- PDF resource with:
- 40 sample Activities List descriptions
- Five Important Misuses of the Common App Additional Info section
- (10) Great “Why us” Essays

Each year I help thousands of students and counselors around the world through my online courses, workshops, articles, blog posts and books. I also work privately with a small number of students each year.
In this LIVE online course, I distill the best and most effective college essay writing resources I have ever used. I’ll personally walk you through how I guide students from "I have no idea what to write about" to "That's the best thing I've ever written."
Can I ask you about my (or my students’) essays during the Q&A sessions?
