Writing an excellent college application essay gives students the chance to stand out apart from their grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities. Student Launch Pad now offers the e-course, PowerEssay, as an online version of its proven college essay curriculum.

The college essay is the place for students to share something unique about themselves that they would want an admissions officer to know and that would not be included anywhere else in their college application.

Student Launch Pad announces the launch of PowerEssay, an online e-course to guide students through a step-by-step process for writing their college application essays. PowerEssay utilizes the same proven, tested curriculum that has helped numerous students gain acceptance to their dream colleges. PowerEssay’s self-directed, online format makes it accessible and available to any student seeking guidance on writing a successful college application essay.

As college admissions get more competitive than ever, students who are applying all have the same great grades, excellent standardized test scores, and well-roundedness of activities and leadership positions.

One distinguishing factor on a student’s college application is an essay that stands out. Writing an excellent college essay gives students the chance to differentiate themselves apart from their grades, SAT or ACT scores, and extracurricular activities.

No matter what college that a student is applying to, it is a competitive process. The essay is a student’s chance to shine, show the admission officers who they are, and why the college needs them on campus in the Fall.

To help students write a successful college application essay that gains acceptance to a student’s dream colleges, Student Launch Pad created PowerEssay. This self-directed e-course is complete with videos, examples of accepted students’ essays, and multiple planning worksheets and tools. It also includes a 30-plus page workbook with a foolproof plan to writing an excellent college essay. This workbook includes worksheets to generate essay or short answer ideas and to organize students’ thoughts. The videos, planning sheets, and workbook are all included in the $79 price of the course.

The purpose of the essay is for students to show colleges who they are as a person apart from their extracurricular activities, grades, and school involvement. Through coaching hundreds of students on identifying, applying, and getting in to their top choice colleges, Stephanie Shackelford, Founder of Student Launch Pad, says, “The college essay is the place for students to share something unique about themselves that they would want an admissions officer to know and that would not be included anywhere else in their application.”
