First, select your topic, and next brainstorm, write, and edit the most memorable college acceptance essay.
Not only is the college essay a place to showcase writing skills, it's one of the only parts of a college application where your voice can shine through.
Unlike test scores and transcripts, the college admissions essay offers a chance to showcase their personality.
The essay, sometimes called a personal statement, should make a good impression and boost your chances of being accepted. This can feel like a lot of pressure especially because you only have a several hundred words to tell your story.
This is the part of the application process that students are most challenged by because looking at a blank page in the computer can be a hard start.
That pressure may be amplified as many colleges have gone test-optional in the past year, meaning that ACT and SAT scores will be considered if submitted but are not required. Other schools have gone test-blind and don't consider such scores at all. In the absence of test scores, some admissions experts have suggested that more attention will be paid to other parts of an application, such as the essay.
From brainstorming essay topics to editing the final draft, crafting a strong college essay is a process that takes time and attention.
