Common App Essay on Ender's Game

<p>This is my first draft. I'm having thoughts on whether I should even submit this essay once it's completed because in it I compare Ender feeling manipulated by adults at battle school each with myself feeling manipulated by adults at regular school. I never cared much for school, it made me feel trapped. I always preferred to to teach myself. However, I don't think college will be like the schooling experiences I've had up to this point and I don't want them to think that, in this essay, I'm saying "I don't really want to go to college" because I truly do!</p>

<p>Anyway, please let me know if you wouldn't mind me PMing the essay to you. Any criticism is greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>I'd be happy to look over it, if you'd like me to. Send it on over. Would you mind looking over mine, as well? I'm assuming you used prompt #4, given that you're writing about a creative work...?</p>
