Tips on Writing Your College Essay

Uncategorized

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