In honor of the start of college admissions season, I’m offering some tips I learned during my time as an admissions application reader and writing consultant tailored to help veterans write college application essays that actually stand out.
As a student at Yale University, Air Force veteran, and mentor for Service to School, many veterans have contacted me asking for advice on how to enter a top-tier college. The benefits of college are widely known. At a top-tier school, you’ll be taught by world-renowned faculty and have access to immense resources. Moreover, you’ll attend classes and collaborate with fellow bright and vibrant students.
