Personal Insight Essay Workshop
This year the UC admissions application requires students to write 4 "personal insight" essays. These essays have replaced the personal statement essays. There are a total of four essays that students are required to complete as part of their admissions applications. We are offering four workshops to help you write your personal insight essays! Two workshops will be presented by our UC Davis Transfer Representative and two workshops will be presented by one of our Counselors. You do not need to register; however, it is recommended because space is limited. **Register online here (select "Personal Insight Essay Workshop") or in person in the Transfer Center**
We will provide snacks and fabulous prizes!
