WHAT IS THE KEY TO WRITING AN ESSAY THAT GETS YOU ADMITTED?

One of the biggest mistakes applicants make is writing a college essay in the same way they would write an English essay. They are not synonymous with each other. Yes, they each need to be creative, organized and articulate, but the college essay has the added responsibility of also serving as a marketing pitch for the applicant. And it needs to do so in a succinct and impactful manner.

What is said in each essay is just as important as how it is said. The tones can range from serious to sentimental to quirky, funny, and ridiculous. In the end, the key to a successful college essay is to add flavor that makes it unique AND personal.

Remember, Admissions Officers only have a finite amount of time to read your application. Grab their attention and make sure they are getting to know the real you!
