What writing 'level' should my scholarship essay be at?
I am applying for a scholarship at a college I have been accepted to. My personal statement, when put through Hemingway Editor, was a Grade 7, but I was accepted on that statement. The scholarship I'm working on is for a full tuition scholarship, so I'm wondering if it should be more formal? It is currently a grade 8. I have written much higher level writing before so I'm wondering if I should try to make the writing more 'smart' by trying to get it to a higher level or not. What is a good level for a college scholarship? Should I put effort into 'leveling it up' or work on content?4 replies
