About this livestream

Description

Join Hale for a breakdown of essay prompts about community service, including: what admissions officers are looking for, how to research school-specific info, and general tips for writing. He'll also go through an example of an essay or two on-air so you can see how admissions officers would critique this kind of essay.

Hale will also open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about community service essays.

Your host

Undergrad College: Yale University '21

Work Experience: I am a senior at Yale and excited to begin my fifth admissions cycle working with CollegeVine. After four years of working directly with students, I can't wait to engage with the people and the process in new and innovative ways online.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Hale and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
20:20@stemcurious:Does it matter if all the community service I do is outside of school? For example tutoring kids for various subjects and spend the money raised via tutoring to help fund education for the underprivileged in third world countries?
21:33@anonymous:How much of the essay should the story take up
42:16@anonymous:What if my activity is same as community service?
