Personal Statements at School of the Arts

(In-Schools Program)

Sep 26,2013, 10:50 AM - 12:30 PM @ School of the Arts
Important note: This project requires a one-hour Personal Statement training in advance. If you have not already attended one in the past, please watch for additional opportunities in October.

Dear 826 Tutors:

Thank you for expressing interest in working with our high-school seniors on their college essays and personal statements. These seniors from San Francisco’s School of the Arts (SOTA) are busy drafting their personal statements (most of which follow the UC guidelines), and are excited to have adult experts sharing in their process. They will have composed and revised a set of essays, so you’ll be reading 2nd and 3rd drafts. In previous years, 826 tutor’s feedback has been remarkably effective, and we hope we can continue on this year as well.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and energy.
