My Teacher Likes The Essay I Don't
I've been going through the college process for a couple of months now, and I've written countless drafts of my college essay. I got one approved by my teacher about managing stress while saving a life. However, I later wrote another one about struggling with my faith that I've become very fond of. My teachers all think that I should continue to write the first essay and forget about the second one, but I feel that the first essay isn't genuine enough to send to schools. Please help! Any advice is highly appreciated!0 replies
