College application essay writing guide

The best way for you to write a remarkable application essay is to know yourself, prepare your ideas in advance and to understand your choices. You must also understand that the application is actually the mirror of yourself and your personality. Getting into the college of your dreams can be pretty hard. Let’s find out together how to write a successful essay. Follow the guide below.

DO SOME RESEARCH

Look for tips and secrets for improving your writing skills. Choose your option and be sure it fits you well. Let’s say you evaluate an achievement and you write the story of its impact on you. Or you write about a risk you have taken and its consequences. You have to go deep and show the reader the complexity of your experience. You evaluate, not just say something. This part of research is very important because finding the best option and the best experience is actually hard.

USE YOUR NATURAL LANGUAGE

Try to write casually and let your thoughts go on the paper naturally. I know you have the dictionary one click away and you can make use of that entire thesaurus but that is not really necessary. It will look awkward, especially if you do not normally utilize those words.

BE CONCISE

You know, you don’t have to write a book. As I’ve stated above, the reader must digest words quickly in order not to get bored. Be accurate, succinct and write fewer words. It’s essential.

MAKE IT AN INTERESTING STORY

Everybody likes reading an interesting story. Put yourself in the place of that guy which needs to read hundreds of papers. Which one will he choose? How do you differentiate yourself from the pack? Let me tell you a trick. The most powerful strategy for making your story interesting is to entice the reader’s curiosity with an opening phrase. Make the reader come into your story and feel what you felt.

GET FEEDBACK BEFORE SUBMITTING

You can ask for feedback from your family, friends, professors or even your coach. Everybody forgets things and this is the way to discover what your eyes didn’t manage to see in first instance.

DON’T FORGET TO REVISE

The only way to write a successful and complete college application essay is to revise and review the information from the paper in front of you. Have multiple revisions; try different angles and points of view from the people who gave you their feedback.
