How to Write a Good Admission Essay

October 20th, 2009 No comments

You are working hard to keep your grades up and your activities demonstrative of a professional interested in succeeding in the college world. Now you have to write your admission essay, a good admission essay. You know it is important – you know it can mean a yes or no; however, that is exactly the problem. You are too worried.

Sit down and say to yourself – I am writing myself a note; or I am writing a note to my great, great, great grandparents so they will know whom I am. This may seem silly; however, it will help a lot. You should pretend that you could send the note back in time to thank you ancestors for who you became. This letter, it is not going to be read by anyone but your relatives and you want your relatives to be very proud of you. You should write something that has happened that demonstrates the great genetics and great success that you have inherited from the amazing people who pioneered the successes that lead to your existence.

Consider something that is important to you, but something that you have done or been a part of that demonstrates your priorities. This is important, because you cannot send a book back in time – only a page or two. In that page, you want your ancestors to know that they have great children in the future. Highlighting a great event in your life will do this. Consider a time you helped another person succeed, or a time you contributed to a great project in school. Describe the situation using your own words and how it made you a better person. When you are done, change the letter in only one way – make it address read the people’s names that you need for your admissions essay.
