Most students write an average of 7 completely different essays during the college application process. Writing effective essays takes time. The summer following your junior year is when you should start thinking about college application essays. By starting in the summer, the task is less stressful. By understanding the process, it becomes less mysterious. By getting something on paper, it becomes less daunting. Doing College holds small summer essay and application workshops for our established clients and the community at large.

Doing College is pleased to arrange individual appointments for students who wish to work one-on-one or have scheduling difficulties that keep them from attending a workshop.
