Your Admission Essay: This is your life

High school seniors are facing deep questions about who they are as they construct their college admission essays due over the next two months if they are pursuing any of the early admission strategies. Those deep questions include:
  • a person who influenced you
  • your personal statement
  • hardships you have overcome
  • significant events and how they affected you
  • significant achievements
  • a page out of your autobiography
  • why you chose this college
  • what service means to you
  • the world you come from and how it shaped you
  • your views on leadership and how they affect how you have been a leader
  • the importance of diversity and how you will add to the diversity of the campus
  • how you contributed to your high school and community
  • your character
These are topics best pondered before writing begins. Discussions with parents, siblings and other relatives can yield wonderful anecdotes about your early life that will make essays much more thoughtful and interesting.
The key to writing a great college admission essay is to know yourself, be authentic in your answers and write to your reader.  Imagine reading hundreds or thousands of these essays.  If it were you, wouldn't you be more interested in admitting students who wrote such interesting essays you wanted to read them to find out the ending?  Wouldn't you appreciate the student who made you laugh?
