It is the best way for your school to get to know who you are and what you represent. Think of it as your life story or bibliography. They don’t want to know where you live or how many dogs you have. They are looking to get an insight into the person that you are and into what you aim to accomplish in your lifetime.

There are ten magic tips to follow when you are writing your paper. You want to make sure that it is a winning one so that you can get accepted into the school of your choice. You have worked so hard up until now and you just want another piece of the puzzle to fall into place so that you can get to where you want to be in life. Getting into the college of your choice is one of your goals. Follow these steps and show who you are and you will be well on your way to accomplishing your dreams.

  1. Talk about the special things that the school can offer you.
  2. Focus on one or two key themes instead of a lot of ideas and experiences.
  3. Find something special about yourself that nobody else can say.
  4. Tell your reader what drives you.
  5. Tell about yourself and don’t just write what the ideal student would be.
  6. Create a creative and interesting introduction.
  7. Don’t just describe your experiences. You need to evaluate them instead.
  8. Choose a font and font size that is easy to read.
  9. Proofread and edit the paper for grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors.
  10. Focus on the positives instead of the negatives.

Once you have your paper written, the next step is to make sure that you get it proofread and edited. You can do this yourself, but it wouldn’t hurt to give it to someone else to look over.

There are times when you correct things in your head because you know what you meant to write and having someone else look it over will help uncover some mistakes that you may have missed.
