Still writing college admission essays?

Chances are that you have already submitted your early decision application if you are applying as an early decision student.  You may have even submitted some of your early action applications. Remaining admissions work inludes early action applications with Nov 15, Dec 1 and Dec 15 deadlines as well as any regular applications you will submit in January.
 
Hopefully, you are submitting essays that best represent who you are.  As you write additional essays or revise old essays to reuse, think about how they represent you.
  • Do they reflect your true character? 
  • How about showing off your sense of humor?
  • Did you write with your reader in mind?
 
Imagine being one of those folks reading thousands of essays.  How can you make your essay enjoyable to read?  How can you make your essay memorable?  A great technique is to have someone else read what you have written before you submit
it. Ask them if it is true to your character and represents you as they know you.  An admissions essay is very important to your application.  Make sure that your essays represent you well.

The complete school admission course of could be exhausting and nerve-racking however there are few things worse than writing the non-public statement for school applications. Your first thought is that it would be a bit of cake, every thing it's a must to do is write a couple of phrases about yourself - what your pursuits are, what you wish to accomplish in life. Nevertheless, private statements for college have by no means been a simple task. When writing an announcement for faculty, your high school writings for which you got straight A's will not do you a lot good.
