Chalk Talk: How to Write an Effective College Application Essay
Writing a college application essay can be difficult. The goal is to impress admission officers by being yourself and showing them that the mix of talents and smarts that you have is sure to help you succeed. First, you should make sure that you start your essay early. The beginning of your senior year is a good to begin. Brainstorm ideas and topics for your essay (if one isn’t given) and try to think about what makes you a unique person. When writing the essay, go into detail. One sentence about how you are hard-working doesn’t really paint the whole picture. Try to write about a specific situation in which you used your determination and other skills to your advantage. When you’ve finished writing your essay, don’t forget to proofread! Do it, do it twice, and then give it to someone else to proofread. Other people may catch mistakes that you didn’t and may be able to give you ideas that will enhance your essay. Your essay is only one part of your application but it holds a lot of weight in the making of admission decisions.
