Is it good to be unique in UC essays?

<p>i waas just wondering if being unique is the most important aspect of the uc personal statement? </p>

<p>Because you would stand out and be memorable right?</p>

<p>Of course! Being unique is very important. They don’t want to be reading a story that is the same as 982390489234 other applicants.</p>

<p>Stand out and be unique, but at the same time, be you! They’ll love it.</p>

<p>Thanks guys! I made my really unique but it is a little odd</p>

<p>The most important is to answer the writing prompt and make it an interesting read for admissions. Your personal stories will make it unique. If you are a creative writer and want to take risk, then go for exceptionally uniqueness, but not many can pull this off. Most important in college essays, be your best self and get your voice across in a positive tone.</p>

<p>Best of luck! :)</p>
