How Many College Essays Do You Have to Write?

This is a great question students never ask:

“How many essays do I need to write when applying to college?”

The answer is more than you think.

On average, students write at least 20 college essays!

Why is this?

Almost all colleges require one personal statement essay and several supplemental essays on unique topics (like why you want to attend our school).

Most students apply to 10-15 schools. That’s actually closer to 30 essays!

As your essay coach, here’s how I help:

  1. Generate tons of unique ideas for your essays.
  2. Strategize when to repurpose content and when not to.
  3. Project manage the massive workload for you.

The bonus (for you and your parents) is 10,000 times less stress!
