No drama college admission essays

As young writers, teens sometimes get carried away with cliché's and highly dramatic descriptions of events and feelings. Use of the cliché and overdone drama rob an essay of the authenticity of the writer. One of the keys to a successful college admission application essay is to write to the reader using words that are appropriate for the topic and that ring true from the perspective the writer.
 
The mission of a college admission essay is to demonstrate writing skill, introduce the character and background of the writer and provide a glimpse of the personality of the writer. The use of a cliché can act to downgrade the impression of the skill of the writer and mask the writer's unique character. The overuse of drama can make the writer appear less mature or shallow.
 
College admissions essay writers should first realize that they are wonderful just as they are and that their job is to demonstrate their genuine wonderfulness. They should write, re-write and write again to get a quality essay. Getting the opinions of teachers and parents is helpful in the process. Thinking about their reader is very helpful. Readers read hundreds of essays. Students should consider how to make their essays memorable in a positive way. The first step in that direction is to write essays that are true to their unique selves.
