Common app essay help

I was wondering if bullying would be a good topic for my common application essay. I want to talk about my past experience of being bullied and how it changed me to be the person I am now.

You don’t want to write an essay that asks your readers for pity. Can write convincingly about how bullying has shaped you and made you a worthy applicant?

Think of the reason they’re writing the essay: “to give them a reason to say yes.”

I think that your topic makes that difficult.

I would much rather see a positive topic.
