How do I answer these college essay questions?

QUESTION
How do I answer these college essay questions?
I have two college essay questions and I’m not sure how to answer them. What should I say in them??
1. What have you learned of yourself preparing for (College Name)?
2. Why did you choose your current major and how do you plan to use your degree to impact that field in the future?

ANSWER
First thing you need to do is relax and starting thinking in steps. After you pick one, stick with it. Don’t think about the other one. Then, break it up into sections: Intro, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Come up with three or four main points you are going to talk about, and about 2 examples for each. Then, come up with a clear, to-the-point thesis statement. Then make your introduction interesting.

After that, start writing your body paragraphs. They can be as long as you want (adjust depending on the requirement). Finish off with a conclusion re-stating your thesis and connecting your essay to the real world. Remember, do not introduce any new points or ideas in your conclusion.

That was pretty much a whole high school writing class in two paragraphs. Good luck.
