College Essays and Personal Statements
“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
At the Atelier we know that getting into your dream college isn’t really such a long shot. It isn’t impossible. It doesn’t all depend on how well you did in your SATs or your exams or in sports (although we aren’t saying that these don’t help). What we’re saying is that YOU are exclusive, unique, engaging, and absolutely, remarkably one-of-a-kind! You are worth it and you deserve it!
Then what’s the only problem? Why is it that so many wonderful and talented people do not get into their college or university of choice? Even when we all know that they’re so dynamic, versatile and utterly fantastic! It’s all because the College doesn’t know that!
The College hasn’t met you and hasn’t heard you give your not-so-rambling speech in front of all your friends on existentialism! The College didn’t see you help the blind man across the street! The College doesn’t know the day dreams you have even late at night!The College doesn’t know how well you sing or what a great paella you can whip up at three in the morning! Not just that, the College doesn’t even know how you manage to ace your exams with the most minimal preparation and last moment cramming sessions (Please note: we think it’s best that the College doesn’t know that, ever).
So what’s the solution you ask? Well, here it is: The College only knows what you write out for them in your college essays and personal statements and usually that isn’t much. It’s boring, repetitive, redundant, superfluous, overdone, over used, trite, common place and dull (just like we are being right now)! The fireworks in your eyes and the stars in your spirit are just not there on that bland, whitewashed paper!
But now with the Atelier we help you structure, plan, develop, and write out your essays that will capture the reader’s attention and goodwill. We’ll help you through the entire writing process, keeping your creative juices flowing and giving you plenty of ideas to sum up yourself in the most succinct and choicest of words. We will teach you to tap into your inner glowing aura and map out your dreams, goals, and ambitions and express them in such a way that they flow like a glimmering river, a picture of ethereal beauty.
That way you can maximize your chances for getting into your dream college and subsequently living your dream life, learning a little more about yourself along the way.
We hope to see you on the other side.
