Hello! It's great that you're getting a head start on your college application essays. There are a few places where you can find the latest essay prompts, and some resources that can help you brainstorm and write compelling essays. First, the Common Application (www.commonapp.org) is a widely used platform for college applications, and they release their essay prompts each year, usually around the same time. You can find their prompts on their website, and they typically stay the same for a couple of years, with minor changes if any. Another source of essay prompts is the Coalition Application (www.coalitionforcollegeaccess.org), which also has a list of prompts for you to choose from. If you're applying to a college that doesn't use either of these platforms, make sure to check the college's admissions page for their specific essay requirements. As for resources to help you brainstorm and write your essays, there are several online tools and articles that can guide you through the process. Some popular options include College Essay Guy (www.collegeessayguy.com) and Prompt (www.prompt.com). Additionally, consider asking your teachers, school counselor, or even your friends and family for their feedback and suggestions on your essay. Best of luck in your essay writing journey!
