CSA #4 Essay Review- How to Request Essay Review from Crosby Scholars (Seniors)

Many college admission and scholarship applications require one or more essays.  Writing essays is often the most intimidating aspect of applying to college.  The Senior Program offers free essay review in order to help you submit strong writing samples.  We believe it is beneficial for an impartial person to read your work and encourage you to use this service. Please log in to your Crosby Scholars Student Portal for details.
