What makes a good college essay?
Hey I’m a junior in high school and I was wondering what makes a really good college essay? Like a blow away college essay? What kinds of things to write about? I know I have to be different I just have no idea where to start….help me please!!!

It’s not really about being different, it’s about how well you can convey your personality and desire to go to that university through your writing. They already know what you can do mentally through your SAT/ACT scores, now they want to see how you are as a person.

For looking at what a specific college wants you can email the adviser for incoming freshmen. Most colleges I’ve heard of have one and the bigger schools even have advisers assigned for your school or area! Just look them up online

hope this helps.
