For students, I highly recommend On Writing the College Application Essay, by Harry Bauld (and yes, his name is as funny and awesome as he is). Mr. Bauld used to be an Ivy admissions officer and is currently an English teacher. Even though the first printing was in the 1980s, it’s still the best book out there – plus, it’s short. Read it the summer before senior year and start writing!
