<p>Essays: Common App was strong in my opinion and did include a bit of humor (hired a personal college counselor who read through it to make sure it was good), attached a Resume in the Additional Documents section, took a LOT of time on the supplement and gave it all that I got. The Why Emory was personalized and very specific, and the optional essay was funny and VERY creative! I loved that one the most :)</p>
