How do you write a good college admissions essay?

QUESTION
How do you write a good college admissions essay?
I mean can you start it like a story?
Should you use cliche phrases like “no matter what I will never give up” blah blah kind in your intro?
I always have a hard time writing the intro because I write general things. Do you think it’s a good ideas to just start with a story in the intro?

ANSWER
Go back to a basic outline:
Say what your going to tell them.
Explain why your going to tell them.
Tell them.
Tell them.
Tell them.
And explain what you just told them.

Its really not as stressful as it seems. Stay away from the cliche, that says nothing about you that you want them to know. Get to the point “YOU WANT TO GO THERE” and then give them 3 or 4 reasons why that school is your choice and how you came to that conclusion, why earned a spot there, and basically what are you going to get out of it and what they will be getting out of you.

Hope it helps. And Good Luck!
