Item description for The Berkeley Book of College Essays: Personal Statements for California Universities and Other Select Schools (A Cody's Book) by Janet Huseby...

Writing the perfect personal statement for college can be a grueling process: What do you write about? How do you write it? Where do you start? This lively collection of essays written by the kids at Berkeley High shows the kind of writing that speaks with a true voice, keeps it real, and wows the admissions officers. Coming from all walks of life and backgrounds, whether urban or suburban, rich or poor, the diverse student body of Berkeley High School sees it all. Learn how these kids write about their eclectic interests, lifestyles, and hardships, and how their real experiences got them real acceptance into top colleges.

Includes:

  • Over 60 actual essays written by successful California university and other selective school applicants
  • A variety of prompts and essay formats
  • An updated "Getting Started" guide with the latest information on the UC application

"These essays encompass the richness of cultures, achievements, experiences, and points of view within a remarkable urban high school, and they demonstrate emphatically that there are many different ways to write a smashingly effective college application essay." -- Bob Laird, former director of undergraduate admission at UC Berkeley

"This is a useful, provocative, and entertaining new book. It is radically different in wholesome ways from most of the other 'How To' essay books that crowd the bookstore shelves.... And it is a great cultural survey of Berkeley: female Boy Scouts, male dancers, you name it. What a great group of kids." -- Jonathan Reider, Director of College Counseling at San Francisco University High School and former Admissions Officer at Stanford University
