Tips for Essay Writing and Writer's Block

My colleague Alison, who heads up our college admissions pratice, just wrote this great blog posting about overcoming writer's block when trying to write your personal essay. It's targeted at college applicants, but it's such great advice that I wanted to share it with other applicants as well (law school, business school, etc.), so I'm "advertising" her post here for our wider readership. Check out her posting and share any tips you have for conquering writer's block!
