“And you think to yourself, ‘this will never get done!’ But with the coaching and editing from Alison, it does! She is able to magically pull the ideas while creating excitement with the kids to get them motivated to write and complete their essays. Best college prep money spent. Thank you, Alison, for ‘getting this done!'”
2017 Yelp Review from parent of UC applicant
The University of California no longer requires an essay. Instead, there are 8 personal insight questions. Students select four and write a short response (max 350 words) for each.
While these responses may not look like an essay, they serve the exact same purpose. Admissions officers use them to learn who you are, how you think, and what matters to you.
Because students generally have very little experience writing about themselves in this way, an essay coach provides the structure and support they need to write with ease and confidence.
The filing period for all UC applications is November 1 to 30.
