The College Essay

Few topics strike such fear into students as the dreaded "College Essay". Years of work and toil comes down to your ability to write something brilliant, moving or insightful, and keep it around 650 words. No pressure!


The truth is that the essay is really an opportunity for your university to get to know you as a person. They can see your academic record and your test scores and your extra curricular activities in other parts of the application, but the essay is your chance to share who you are and what makes you tick. Universities want to know who you are as a learner and as a person and how that will fit with their institutional goals.


That might sound even more intimidating. Talking about ourselves in a real and relatable way is not something everyone is good at. It takes time and it often takes help from someone who will ask the important questions to understand who you really are and what you really want. That dialogue can help you better know yourself so you are able to write that 650 word essay that lets your dream university have the best chance of knowing you.
