I'm an international student and I'm trying to apply for colleges in the USA, I know that I need to write an essay but It's hard to pick a topic. Is there any free help online?

    This is a great question -- there might be some help online but we recently covered this topic in a College Confidential article, which you can find here:https://insights.collegeconfidential.com/college-essay-tips-from-admission-officers

    Agree that applicants should "practice self-reflection before writing" and that their application essays should be "authentic". Also important to "show who you really are", but this seems redundant with the more succinctly stated advice to be "authentic".

    In my opinion, it is a bit ridiculous to "start early" as suggested in the above cited article as individuals grow & develop (change) over the course of a year while in high school.

    Also disagree with any advice about "being unique". Not necessary for anyone who is "authentic".
