How to write a very successful college essay?

QUESTION
How to write a very successful college essay?
Tips from people who are experienced and wrote a very good essay? what should i talk about?

ANSWER
A few tips:

1. Use. Good. Grammar. If you don’t have that, it’s going to be hard to write even a decent essay.
2. Be honest – don’t try to push a story to sway anyone. Just be yourself and remember that these people have seen and read everything. The best thing you can do is to be true to yourself.
3. Don’t forget your end goal – you’re trying to get into college. Don’t bring up irrelevant topics that have nothing to do with the essay. If you want to be a doctor, don’t talk about how much you loved babysitting your neighbor’s kids. If you can see yourself being a teacher, don’t talk about your experience at a vet clinic. Keep it relevant.
4. Think outside the box. It’s fine to use stories that may not have a direct connection, but just remember to stay focused. For example, let’s say you want to become a vet. You first knew you wanted to become one from the moment you adopted your first dog. Sure he may have chewed all of your mother’s chews, eaten a few birthday cakes, etc. but you were dedicated to that dog.
