common app essay

<p>on the common app, it gives you a list of prompts and then a "topic of your choice", so basically we can write about ANYTHING? what is a personal statement anyways?</p>

<p>yup you can write about anything... like if you have an essay from another college application you can use that instead. </p>

<p>"The major goal of the personal statement is to communicate to the admissions committee what it is about you which make you stand out from the other applicants. "

<p>thank you kettlin. that website is very helpful.</p>

<p>yup... no problem. you can search google for more definitions..... "definition personal statement"</p>

<p>I wonder if I should title my "Other Topic" essay.. heh.</p>

<p>whats your essay about? if it doesnt fit in any of the categories then put it in 'other topic'....</p>

<p>Actually.. it fits # 5 (for diversity)</p>
