With the increasing number of applications pouring in the offices of every college, getting admission in a good college is becoming difficult day after another. The college admission essay is a reflection of your ability and opens the gate of higher education for you. Hence it is important to know how to write a good essay. There are three basic steps involved in this process:
•Thinking of the various topics- Once you know that you have to write an essay, devote sufficient time in thinking of the various options on which you should write. You can choose to write on your hobby or skill, any adventurous incidence, any challenge that you faced in life and how you solved it, your struggle, a favourite book or a movie, telling about the reason for joining the college, what you want to be in life, your childhood, your role model etc. A personal essay will give the selector an idea about how you are suitable for the college seat.
*Tone- Choose the words carefully to keep the tone of the essay balanced. If you are talking about your accomplishments or your skills, do not start bragging as if you are unbeatable. It should be a mix of pride, humility and generosity.
*Smaller errors- Do not ignore any grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors in the essay. Even a small error can take away your chance of being selected.
Once you have put your best effort in your college admission essay, leave it aside for a couple of days. Revisit it, when 2-3 days have passed and do a critical analysis of what you have written on the basis of above points. The outcome of this analysis will definitely improve your essay. We wish you the Best of Luck.
