Quotes in the essay--Good or Bad?
Is it frowned upon by college admissions to use a quote in an essay, particularly as an attention getter? I feel that a quote would fit my essay nicely, but I am not sure if this is a huge mistake that breaks some sort of unspoken rule of essay educate, or even if it isn't wrong but will look bad or be "frowned upon."
Any thoughts? Thanks for the help in advance! Definitely need some guidance here.
