Need help with college? We've got you.

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

Dear Seniors (from 2020 and beyond),

Good news! You are currently in one of the most stressful times in your life. With college and scholarship applications, incessant pressure to decide exactly what to do next year, and extreme ups and downs of self-worth, Senior year is hard. But, speaking from the midst of the storm, I can honestly say that if you embrace it, the stress and essays and pressure, this era can breed enormous growth and prepare you for next year’s responsibility and independence.

I’ve compiled a list of resources to help us through the college application process:

The Basics, what admissions are looking at and how to start

Essay Prompts, to get you started on writing

Examples of UC essay from former PL students

Rocking Your College Interview, advice from an alumni interviewer
