About this livestream


Join Shravya for another installment of CollegeVine’s Writing Workshop!

During this event (designed specifically for current high school students), Shravya will select a few pieces of writing submitted by the audience to review LIVE on air. Any type of writing is welcome in the Writing Workshop — college and scholarship essays, papers for class, articles for your school’s newspaper, or even personal projects of your own. For each piece, Shravya will walk through what you’ve written, paying particular attention to any special review requests, and offer suggestions for improvement.

To submit your writing for the workshop, please use this form.

Your host

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.

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 Shravya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
