What's the main point of an admissions essay?

<p>In a broad sense, what do you think one should try to impart in his/her essay?</p>

<p>What is the best way to "use" an essay?</p>

<p>I feel really at a lost. I should be trying to say something that's not seen in my application, right?</p>

<p>Gosh, I'm really panicking.</p>
