Essay tips: writing about an abusive relationship?
Hello everyone! I'm currently in the process of filling out applications and obviously the essay is the major component. When asked about a growth experience, my main thought that I actually think I could write a lot about without being cliche is an emotionally abusive "relationship" I was in during my sophomore year. I dont want to make myself seem like I was boy crazy or anything, but it would explain my low grades during one semester as well. Is this risky? Do you think it gives off the wrong impression? Thanks for any advice!20 replies
