H i, summer is almost here, which means only one thing for Class of 2016 kids – it’s “Essay Time!”
One of the biggest pitfalls that messes with high school seniors is that they have more schoolwork than ever before in the first half of senior year.
If you’re taking a bunch of AP or other competitive classes, your teachers will continue to teach them as they must, they will not care whether you also have college essays and applications to do.
My recommendation to client and non-client alike is to get the Common Application essay done BEFORE Labor Day. And if you’re applying to a bunch of colleges that have supplemental essays, you’d be smart to get crackin’ on some of them, too.
Here is the “pre-release” of the essay questions on the Common Application, which is officially released August 1:
I’m conducting a live, interactive online training on the college essays, keep your eyes peeled for an announcement (if you’r on my email list. If you aren’t, you can add yourself when you sign up for our newsletter, The College Success For Less Bulletin .)
Pearl and Andy Lockwood host The College Success for Less Show and are attorneys-turned "late stage" college finance consultants. They coach select college-bound teens on the process of choosing and getting into top colleges that will prepare them for success post-college, and they help "Forgotten Middle Class" obtain tuition discounts of 46.3% or more, even if they think they cannot qualify for anything.
Andy wrote two #1 Best Selling books, "How to Pay 'Wholesale' for College," on financial aid strategies, and "The Incomparable Applicant," on admissions tips and tactics.
Pearl, a former prosecutor in Queens County, NY, received her B.S. from Cornell University. Andy received his B.A. from Wesleyan University (where he was a member of (not "played for") the basketball team). They each received a J.D. from St. John's University Law School, where they met on the first day. Awwwww.
More information about their college admissions and financial aid planning service is available at www.CollegePlanningGuru.com.

Pearl and Andy on CBS News
The 2015-16 college application season is officially underway after the opening of the Common Application over the weekend. Many essay prompts were made available by colleges over the summer, but the launch of the new Common Application has allowed more insight into what colleges want students to write about this year – no matter how strange.
One prevalent college admissions trend we’ve seen over the past few years is the use of strange, unusual, or alternative supplemental essay questions. Whether it’s an odd essay prompt, a short answer response, fill-in-the-blank, or even the option to answer a prompt with a video, colleges are getting more creative with their applications, forcing students to think outside of the box when applying to certain colleges.
Every year we like to highlight some of the funniest and quirkiest college application essay prompts that students will have to answer. Here are some of the most unusual essay prompts from the 2015-16 application season.
