The authors of the bestselling Cash for College TM show students how to win at one of the most intimidating tasks of the college scholarship and admissions process: writing the essay. From basic rules of good writing to actual questions admissions committees ask and featuring more than 100 dramatic "essay makeovers" showing how a weak essay can be pulled into exceptional shape--it's all here.

More than grades, application essays showcase a student's uniqueness. A great essay can make your college and scholarship dreams come true. The McKees have field-tested their techniques with thousands of students through their workshops and powerful, intensive, five-day "Scholarship Boot Camp."

The McKees reveal what admissions and scholarship committees look for in an essay and how to make yours stand out. A personal questionnaire helps students highlight their strengths. Additional chapters offer advice on organizing your thoughts, topics to avoid, essential rules of grammar, and how to edit your completed essay.
