How to Write Better College Essays

How to Write Better College Essays

As college admissions become more and more difficult and applicants become more and more qualified, the college essay gains clout as a vital part of the application process. An outstanding personal essay, no matter how long, is sometimes the deciding factor for a prospective student. But itís not enough to show proficiency with the written word -- at least not anymore. Todayís personal essays revolve around the sense of personality and style gleaned from each sentence, and itís your responsibility to harness those elements. The following tips will get you on your way to the acceptance pile.

BRAINSTORM EARLY

The most important part of a college essay is the actual topic, so you need plenty of time to mull over the choices. Youíll want something interesting, but not clichť, significant but not trite. Consider the following questions during your brainstorming process:

1. What distinguishes you from others in your age group? Any special skills, talents, interests or attributes?

2. Have you engaged yourself in a fierce struggle for something? Did you succeed or fail? What have you learned?

3. What are your most concrete goals for the future? Where do want to be in 20 years and how will you get there?

4. What or who has been influential in your life? How or why?

NARROW THE TOPIC

Though itís tempting to ramble through your whole life story in a college essay, be careful to keep your topic narrowed. Write one sentence (a thesis, in a sentence) that sums up the point of your entire essay, and make each paragraph support that one sentence. Try not to get too lofty with your concept; find the point and stick to it.

FINE-TUNE THE OPENING

The opening paragraph is your first (and sometimes only) chance to grab firmly the attention of admission officials, so donít create a lazy intro that simply sums up what youíll discuss. Be vivid, clear and original; try piquing their interest with an anecdote or poignant question. Give your intro an element of mystery and intrigue -- really make the reader want to read more. This could be the most important paragraph in the essay, so devote plenty of time to crafting this well.

REVEAL YOUR PERSONALITY

Sure, admissions officials arenít your best friends and you shouldnít write as if they are. But if you get mired in formality, paralyzed by grammar, you might exclude the most crucial element of your essay -- you. Colleges want to know who you are and what traits make you shine, so donít be afraid to let the real you shine through. But never paint yourself into an image that isnít really you; if you have to alter your personality drastically to gain acceptance to a school, chances are good that itís not the right school for you.

FORGET THE BIG WORDS...SOMETIMES

Showing off your massive vocabulary may seem like an instant ticket to acceptance. But if youíre using a thesaurus for every word or phrase, youíre probably draining the essay of both personality and readability. Use only words youíd actually use in conversation (or, at least, words of which you know the meaning) and be sparing; big words are fine, of course, but they need to make sense in context. Wordiness for the sake of wordiness doesnít make you seem smarter; it just seems moderately uncreative. To write in Plain English, use a software program like WhiteSmoke Software ( http://www.WhiteSmokeSoftware ) or StyleWriter ( http://www.StyleWriter-USA.com ).

END WITH A BANG

Since the college essay is usually short to begin with, concluding with a summary paragraph is fairly redundant. Instead, use this paragraph to create a stunning last impression. How does your topic fit into a larger issue? What have you learned from the experience about which youíve written? Are there any poignant quotes that illuminate your ideas? You donít need to create a tidy, television-style wrap-up, but you do need to end strongly; this is your last chance to make a vivid impression.
