I'm interested in reading something that's well written and personal. Admission officers at most schools aren't going to dismiss a well written essay if it's not in line with their beliefs (the exceptions are those at schools with very specific missions). If we only liked essays about our pet topics, our student body would be pretty boring. |
If you've been to our information sessions or if we've been at your schoo's "College Night" (event for juniors to get them started with the process), you've probably heard us address this.
that's the big thing you should get from the first link.
snow, someone asked this question in the chat as well and I basically gave them a version of Dean J's response. Write about what your passionate about without going over the line. In other words, don't be offensive or quick to dismiss any other view. (I'm not saying you will; it's just a general piece of advice.) It would be better that you wrote about your religion than english class.
I just feel that writing about one of the most important things in my life would help you guys learn more about me than if I wrote about something else.
yup!! you're on the right track. good luck.
