Chalk Talk: The Importance of the College Essay
It can be quite discouraging for a student to realize that after all the work they’ve put into the college search and admission process, they end up with a small stack of virtual “paper” that represents them as a student and person. Even more discouraging can be the thought that perhaps this is all the college application committee will see the student as. But this is why the college essay is so essential. The essay is an opportunity for the applicant to become more than just a pile of paper. The essay can help the admissions committee really understand who this applicant is. The essay should demonstrate the applicant’s personality, passions, and a whole host of qualities. Different applicants have different qualities, of course; some are more social than others. Some play one sport, others play many, and some play few if any. Whatever the applicants’ qualities are, the essay should demonstrate them as effectively as possible to really make the applicant stand out as a person, not just some paper in an envelope.
