Chalk Talk: The College Essay
Whether you’re applying to a state school, a big university, or a small private college, most colleges require an essay, and those that don’t require it will consider one. It’s a good idea to go ahead and send one even if it isn’t required. Most students will “recycle” one essay to use for several colleges by reworking major themes to fit different prompts, and this is acceptable. The essay is important because it is one of the only opportunities an applicant will have to truly differentiate him/herself from other applicants. It’s an opportunity for the student to speak in his/her own voice. Colleges and universities that accept the common application will accept an essay based on its prompts, though they might ask for an additional supplemental essay. The prompt for this supplement is often something like “Why do you want to attend this college?” This is a difficult topic to answer creatively because most students will have the same things to say: I like the programs. I like the location. I like campus. How to stand out? Try to really personalize the essay and focus on things that matter to you, rather than just throwing in some facts found on the college’s website.
