Looking for judgement :)

JonDangJonDang 1 replies1 threadsRegistered User New Member
I wrote my essay in the last days, and as I am an international applicant, it's hard for me without any college instructor at HS. If anyone here could read my essay and give me some feedback, I would be thankful.

Thanks for reading this thread, just drop me a DM.

    My judgment is you spell judgment with one e.

    Google "Hacking the College Essay 2017" and read it.

    Write the Essay No One Else Could Write
    "It boils down to this: the essay that gets you in is the essay that no other applicant could write.
    Is this a trick? The rest of this guide gives you the best strategies to accomplish this single
    most important thing: write the essay no one else could write.
    If someone reading your essay gets the feeling some other applicant could have written it,
    then you’re in trouble.
    Why is this so important? Because most essays sound like they could have been written by
    anyone. Remember that most essays fail to do what they should: replace numbers (SAT/GPA) with the real you.
    Put yourself in the shoes of an admissions officer. She’s got limited time and a stack of
    applications. Each application is mostly numbers and other stuff that looks the same. Then she picks
    up your essay. Sixty seconds later, what is her impression of you? Will she know something specifically
    about you? Or will you still be indistinguishable from the hundreds of other applicants she has been
    reading about?"

    My judgement is that people are overly fond of making their pet peeves into real issues - either spelling is acceptable.

    @CalMom13 You never failed an essay because you spelled judgment wrong in 10th grade :-) Thanks, Miss Benz.
