Our live chat is above, and we will be taking your questions tonight, Thursday, September 20 at 6 p.m.
Newton Patch will host a live chat with Sarah Myers McGinty, author of the "The College Application Essay and former member of the writing faculty at Harvard University, as well as a former admissions director at Sarah Lawrence College and principal of the McGinty Consulting Group.
And on Sunday, Sept. 23 McGinty will be at theBrookline Booksmith at 4 p.m., talking more about her book and about the process of making your essay say, "Pick me!"
To get ready, throughout the week we have asked readers what they wished they knew about essay-writing, and what questions they have about application essays. Tonight, we will answer your questions.
So, leave your question below now and then come back to Newton Patch on Thursday at 6 p.m., or ask it when the chat begins.
