College Application Essay Tips for International StudentsFrom Greece to Vietnam, I hear from students who have questions about how to write college admissions essays and especially how to write the Common Application personal essay.

International students face unique challenges. Many aren’t writing in their native language. Others aren’t sure what colleges look for in an essay or if they’ve chosen the right story.

That’s why I’ve written Writing College Admissions Essays — An International Student’s Guide. I’m delighted that it has been published by both i-studentglobal and Magoosh.
