Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors: How to Shine in Your College Essay
How to Shine in Your College Essay
Write an essay they'll remember!
- Develop your topic like a story. Colleges look for students who seek challenges and learn from them. Even a small incident of personal growth can lead to an amazing essay.
- Get a good start. One way to get going is to talk through your topic. Record your thoughts or have someone note them for you.
- Show your thoughtfulness. Push yourself to think deeply about why your topic is compelling to you. Explain how you feel about it and why.
- Revise until it feels right. Ask someone with excellent grammar skills, such as a teacher or parent, to proofread it.
Remember, it's always about you.
