Chalk Talk: The College Essay
One of the most important things to consider when writing the college application essay is tone. Tone is how something is communicated. Topic is, obviously, important, but how something is said can be much more important than even what is said. Consider this: one event can be described in many different ways with many different results. The same experience could be described in such a way as to inspire pity in a reader, or admiration, or humor; the only real difference is the tone. Tone should be considered because it affects how the reader responds to the essay. Do you want the reader to feel pity? Or to feel admiration? Or to laugh? Any of these responses could be useful objectives but without paying attention to tone, you won’t be able to steer the reader in the direction you want. And keep in mind that tone can be created and changed with miniscule word choices. Sometimes, one word in a paragraph can change the entire flow of that paragraph.
