Thinking about your high school senior applying to college is a big change and may be difficult to prepare for and adjust to. If you have been fearing college admission preparation all summer, lay these fears to rest, Greenwich Library will keep you calm and organized with resources on the College and Career section of our Teen page and rows and rows of books devoted to finding the right college, writing the perfect admissions essay and getting in.
What many parents don’t know is that constructing a college application is a science. It is much more than typing a few sentences into the Common App and pressing send. There are secrets to college admissions that no college or high school tells you that could lead to your child’s acceptance into their #1 school. These secrets and more are revealed in books like Accepted! 50 Successful College Admission Essays, What High Schools Don’t Tell You : 300+ secrets to make your kid irresistible to colleges by senior year, and The College Hook all of which are located on the first floor of the Library.

Gelb will provide tips and strategies for crafting a winning personal statement and will share the qualities and techniques necessary to craft a narrative that expresses your unique personality, strengths and goals.
