5 Tips on Writing Your College Essay

Uncategorized
  1. Keep the audience in mind when writing your essay
  2. Realize the reader will probably spend 1 minute on your essay so get their attention early
  3. Make sure the reader learns something about you that he or she would not learn from your application
  4. Tell a story, don’t write a resume
  5. Try to “connect” to the reader
