How To Craft an Outstanding College Admission Essay?

College application essays are an important part of your application when you want to get admission in a college. This application essay is completely different from the normal essays where you can even ask your friend to write my essay, but in case of application essay, you must write it on your own. 

Because at the end, the admission committee will assess you by the provided application essay and in the interview they will ask you questions from that essay.

So that means that you have to be extra careful while writing your college application essay if you are serious about getting admission in a prestigious college.

So in this blog, you will come to know about some of the easiest steps that will help you to generate an outstanding admission essay.

But before jumping into the steps, I want to give you two suggestions before you start writing your essay. The first one is “Be Yourself” and secondly ‘Start Early."


So what are you waiting for let's read the rest of this blog.

  1. Choose a Topic That Will Highlight You



While writing your essay make sure that you don’t focus on some of the great aspects of the particular college you are applying. 

Don't mention the dedication it takes to be a doctor or the extracurricular activities you did in your high school.

This way you are only wasting your time and your application will fail to grab the admission committee’s attention.

Instead of doing that you can tell a personal story that helped you to groom and that made you stand out in the crowd. 

Such experiences are vital in an application essay because they provide a window into your personal life. 

The application essay provides you the opportunity to cover those aspects which are not mentioned in the rest of the application.

So take this opportunity wisely and blow their minds.

  1. Keep a Focused and Narrow Approach


While writing your essay, be careful that you don’t cover too many aspects of your life. This way your essay will be more like a resume which normally don’t provide any details about you. 

The better way is to focus on only one aspect of your life.

 For example, you can write about one specific challenge that you faced and what approaches did you use to overcome them. 

How those challenges helped you to become who you are?

  1. Try to Use your Own Inner Voice


It’s good that you get inspiration from the applications that are available online. But never try to use those ideas in your application.

Try to avoid unnecessary words or those words that are too technical for you. 

An admission team is a group of very experienced people, so they will instantly know if your essay is edited by someone adult.

Just try to be yourself and write everything on your own. 


  1. Do Proofread it


Ok so now you are done writing your essay, so the next most important step is proofreading. Go through your essay and highlight any spelling and grammatical mistake you have done.

If you are not satisfied with your own proofreading, then you can ask your friend or sibling to do it for you. 

College application essays are fun to do if you know how to stay focused and get it done smartly.

Have you ever faced difficulty while writing your application essay?
