Writing about a controversial topic (college essay).
This is Boston college's essay question:
What contemporary issue or trend relating to politics, culture, and history or foreign policy particularly concerns you and why? (400 words)
I'm currently writing about how education is slowly becoming out of reach for the average joe (due to skyrocketing tuition, colleges acting more like businesses than centers of education, etc). This is a vicious trend that has been going on for 2 decades now.
I feel this will be a unique, substantial essay but I am worried the admissions office will be irked when they read it, due to my criticism of college costs, tuition etc.
Do you (parents) believe I should continue writing about this topic? Or should I switch to a less controversial question
