The College Admission Essay

Take note of the following instructions to make you ready for your college admission essay!

In writing your essay take note of the following points:

1. What is the question? What does the essay require? Set a time-limit.

More or less you should establish an idea. Don't confuse yourself with a lot of words and ideas you cannot organize and is way out of your main topic and essay title. Don't even show -off using highfalutin and vague words. Attack a question forthright and give the answers you can explain.

2. Outline the details.

Here - be ready to discuss, explain, summarize, compare, or give examples. Go to the specifics, those the reader/examiner will easily understand. Highlight the significance of your essay.

3. Organize your ideas from the outline.

These ideas will be the body of your essay that would contain the development of your answers. Support your answers with helpful details, references, and facts. Professional advice and true-to-life experiences can vouch for information. Don't go far from the subject. Display of additional knowledge that is not solicited is a turn-off.

4. Write a good beginning sentence and finish making your point.

A good beginning sentence and ending sentence bring curiosity to the readers and examiners. These sentences are the principal keys for the success of your college admission essay (that you would pass the college admission essay test).

5. Check your work.

See the spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Add and subtract sentences. Polish sentences and paragraphs. Clarify ideas.

Here's an example of a college admission essay question:

Why would you want to pursue a college/university education?

Answer: (in outline form)

Beginning sentence: My future will depend on this endeavor.

Body/paragraph development:

1. A college education will create discipline and higher standards of learning.
2. I could be a better citizen now and in the future.
3. The world needs experts in many fields, I want to be one expert in my chosen vocation.
4. College education is a gift.
5. I want to earn, work, and serve people.

Ending sentence: Hence, a college education is a big step in fulfilling my goals in life.

Now, write your essay and practice filling in your ideas. You can expand the sentences or just take one from the five answers above. It would depend on how you would organize your details and examples. The question here could detect how honest you are. How would you express yourself and lift the thought of your reader/examiner?

The college admission essay could be your photo. Look your best and always try.
