QUESTION
People say you are supposed to write your college essay on a life-defining experience…?
but what if we haven’t had one yet?

ANSWER
I think the key here to write something personal…even if it didnt happen to you. Think about your life, think about an event that someone close to you went through, maybe it was a death of a grandparent, a divorce of your parents or your friends parents, I think what the board wants to hear is your own voice…not someone who is babbling off their achievments and grades and talks about how great their school is…they already know that. Maybe start off by talking about what you wanted to be as a kid…maybe it was something ridiculous and here you are now at 17 (or however old you are) and you cant believe how fast it has gone by…you are staring at your future…stuff like that.
