The Princeton Review is currently updating College Essays That Made a Difference (Random House).
First published in 2003, this book has helped thousands of college applicants through one of the most trying parts of the application process: the essay. To keep the content exciting and up-to-date, we are looking for new essays to include in the forthcoming 2014 edition. If you are currently enrolled as a full time student in a college or university, or graduated a college or university in the last 2 years, in the United States, we invite you to submit your essay to be considered for publication.
Along with each essay featured in the book, we will include the applicant’s academic and demographic profile, along with the schools to which the applicant applied, whether he or she was denied or accepted at each, and the name of the school that he or she chose to attend. The aim of the book is not only to inspire readers to tell their own stories in their own voices, but also to provide context, so that readers can see how the college essay fits into each applicant’s broader admissions profile.
You can submit your essay by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to reading your work!
