Let's Get Personal How to Apply to College Like A Pro

    • Education

Referencing Olivia Newton John's hit single "Let's Get Physical," Dan and David discuss all things college essay-related, including how to draft your essays, choosing a topic to write about, and taking the extra time to answer those "optional" prompts.

An important note: these episodes were recorded in 2020, a year when several colleges opted to change their admissions policies. Always be sure to check your school's admissions website for the most up-to-date information regarding writing requirements and application deadlines.

For essay guides, deadline trackers, and other features that help you prepare for college, download Occam's app, Wend (formerly named VitaeMe), which is free on the App Store.
