The essay topic for the National Merit Application is pretty broad, so I was wondering if you guys could help guide me in the right direction for it.
The topic is: In your own words, describe your personal characteristics, accomplishments, plans, and goals. What sets you apart? 500words
So, should my essay encompass all those things (characteristics, accomplishments) or just focus on one thing? I'm confused because it's the first "college" essay I've really worked on. Help?
