With the 2021 Fall application coming for UCs on November 30, many college seniors will be spending their Thanksgiving break filling out their college applications and frantically writing essays. 

And in a year when so much has been disrupted and so many kids have spent their time at home, it might be challenging to figure out what to put in a college essay or how to make it stand out. 

We check in on what’s going on with the UCs and we get tips on app and essay writing from an expert. If you’re a student or parent and you have questions, call us at 866-893-5722.
