Honest Advice on Essay?
I am currently working on my essay to transfer from my current college. The essay prompt was to write about a theme that has been important in your life. I did that and then wrote about how the theme aligned with the university I am hoping to transfer to. In your opinion, does adding this seem too try-hard? I don't want the admissions team to deny me for this. Also, the minimum word count was 250 words and I have 380. Should I make this longer? I tried to find a good place above the minimum but not annoyingly long considering they have to read so many essays and probably don't want to read 1000 words.3 replies
