Keys to writing a memorable essay

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Every experience in your life, every challenge, every success, or perceived failure, informs your decision-making and impacts how you experience the world. The application essay is where you get to show it. Here are our top 3 tips.

1) Pay close attention to the application essay prompt and be sure to answer the question asked. Many students focus on what they want the admissions committee to know about them and not what the admissions committee is asking them to share.

2) Start with a strong opening sentence that commands attention and invites the reader to learn more.

3) Do not sound phony or scripted. You should not use language you would not ordinarily use, and you should avoid overly formal or complex language.
