The tone and big-picture of what the student is trying to achieve with the essay matches what we've heard from college admissions officers. Thanks for providing a clear path to get there!
Your section on how to write an anecdote will be particularly useful for students who struggle with getting started and engaging the reader's attention. Overall, I love the book's step-by-step approach, its tons of examples, the quickie overviews for each chapter, and the final checklist.
