How to Write a Unique Essay

<p>I need to write a unique essay to Columbia (MY DREAM!) and I really want to make it perfect! How can I make sure it's unique?</p>

<p>If we help you, it’s not going to be very unique.</p>

<p>“Your essay should be so personal and specific that if it fell out of your backpack at school, and it didn’t have your name on it, that if a classmate, who you knew you well, happened upon it laying on the hallway of your school, he or she should be able to read it, immediately know it was your essay and return it to you.” -Columbia Admissions Director</p>
