Also, the essay is already titled for you, in a way. It's "Personal Essay/Statement/whatever." And what exactly are the benefits of a title, now that I look back on it? I don't know. I can only think of potential detriments: If your essay is better than your title, you made a bad title and are viewed as lazy and uncreative. If your title is better than your essay, you are viewed as one who doesn't live up to expectations or cannot sustain positive work. Maybe my logic is wrong here?
