College Essay Mentors
Essay Mentor Support for Students
Oakland Tech’s College Essay Mentors provide FREE assistance with the college application essay (UCs, personal statement, common app, supplements) on a first-come, first-served basis. Mentors are professional writers seeking to support Tech students — especially those who do not have access to professional college counselors. For a student with inconsistent grades or a deeper story to tell, the essay can make a huge difference in admissions. Students do not need to have drafted essays to come in for help.
