Are Exploration Sessions Right for Me?

Whether you’re starting early or are facing down a deadline, Exploration Sessions will help you determine your best material and direction for your main application essay.

How Do Exploration Sessions Work?

In our experience, conversations early in the writing process can move an application writer out of uncertainty or doubt and into motivating confidence and enthusiasm. Exploration Sessions provide the space for such conversation and conversion.

Beyond initial ideas, all that a student needs to bring to a session is openness, curiosity, and a readiness for storytelling. The coach digs for the significant details to help the writer toward a fresh individual vision, and toward the authentic insight that motivates the best of essays. Two exploration sessions (max) may be booked with a coach, who can give guidance about how to proceed if further support is desired.
