Education is one of the most valuable gifts one can receive. With the climate in the college admissions landscape getting more competitive, convoluted, and complicated by the year, parents and students are often at a loss for how to maximize their chances of getting a great education from an esteemed college. The myriad of advice and opinions from guidance counselors, essay consultants, and friends can become cacophonous and actually undermine the effect of the students’ college essays. We graduated from Harvard University with a vision to find the most effective way to help students across the globe with the admissions process. Believing in the importance of following paths of success, we reached out to fellow Harvard students and compiled 58 recent essays that earned the entrance to one of the top universities in the world. Instead of just giving generic college admissions advices, we hope to show you, concretely, what works. Within these 58 essays, you will find topics ranging from extracurricular activities, to families, to summer camp experiences and everything in between; but what you will also find is a unique, passionate, and clear voice in each of them that distinguished them from the masses. By reading through each of these recent successful essays, we are confident that you will find your own voice and be able to write a Harvard-tier admissions essay too.
