About this livestream


Join Giebien for a breakdown of the 'community' or 'diversity' essay prompt type, including: what admissions officers are looking for, when to include school-specific info, and general tips for writing. He'll also go through an essay example or two on-air so you can see how admissions officers would critique this kind of essay.

Once the presentation is complete, Hale will open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about diversity-themed essays.

Undergrad College: Williams College '20

Work Experience: I first joined CollegeVine in the fall of 2016. Since then, I've worked as an essay and admissions consultant, SAT tutor, and hiring manager within the company. More recently, I've also advised hundreds of students in my livestreams, specializing in liberal arts colleges and standardized testing content.

My Admissions Story: I did almost everything wrong in my undergraduate applications, and I was never supposed to attend Williams. The fact that I did is the best thing that ever happened to me! I've learned a lot of tips over the years on what to do in your college applications, and I have ample first-hand experience of what not to do as well. But the biggest lesson of all? Don't let yourself stress too much about the admissions process. Things (somehow) found a way to work out for me in the end. They will for you, too!
