If you're like many other international applicants to U.S. and U.K. universities, you may be unsure how to write an application essay or personal statement. Relax! There is nothing to fear. You can write great essays. You just need to know what is expected of you. While there are countless “guides” to writing application essays for U.S. and U.K. colleges and universities, many are a waste of time. There are no tricks that will allow you to write a great essay in thirty minutes, and reading a bunch of essays that "worked" isn't really going to help you write YOUR essays. What's worse, little if any of the advice in other guides is tailored to meet the needs of international students. After years of watching overseas applicants struggle with the essay writing process, the need for this guide became clear.
Whether you are applying to universities in the United States and United Kingdom, or schools elsewhere in the world that use American or British style applications, this guide has you covered. The advice inside is “battlefield-tested.” Everything included has helped real overseas applicants to U.S. and U.K. colleges and universities succeed; it can do the same for you. Inside the second edition of the Worldwide Scholar Overseas Applicants' Guide to College Application Essays & Personal Statements you will find detailed advice on preparing to write your essays, choosing topics, writing the essays, and editing the essays.
We can't guarantee you will get into Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Cambridge or Oxford using our guide. No one can! But it can help you find your voice, allowing you to show the universities who you really are while avoiding the common pitfalls that plague essays from international students.
