I was curious if anyone had any pointers for a college application essay.
I don't want to begin with the whole 'my summer at camp' or 'my favorite sport/hobby'. I'm unique and I want to relay that. I'm a very hard person to describe and not sure how best to portray this some-what wild but smart, strong but caring persona I am trying to relay.
What do you all think?
When I enter college, I also write an application essay. My topic is all about how the students choose their courses. Because some students did not choose their course instead it was choose by their parents. I hope you got my idea.
I agree, Google it first or Bing it and find all the free help you can on the subject. To find out what the people are looking for in your admission essay.
I would definitely attempt to write something unique like you said, but keep it simple and honest!
I would imagine being a essay reader for a University would be mega boring in that every essay would basically be the same!!
Try contacting the College and asking them what they suggest as a format for the essay?
I don't envy you, and I missed out on this whole process because I went to a Community College first and then transferred to a 4 year college, so all they cared about was my transcripts and transfer credits, I did not have to write an admission essay or anything of the sort.
Plus, you don't need to write an admission essay to attend classes at most community colleges, or at least I didn't.
Good luck with it!!
