The key to a superior admissions essay is originality. Writing an admissions essay is your chance to distinguish yourself from all of the other applicants trying to get into the same university. Therefore, you should take time to make sure that the subject matter of your composition is unique and your grammar faultless.
Since most colleges give applicants a topic on which to write their admissions essays, many individuals believe that it is near impossible to make their admissions compositions creative and/or unique. I am here to tell you, however, that this is positively not true. The purpose of a college admissions essay is to allow admission board members a glimpse of who you are. . .so feel free to be as creative as you’d like!
There are many ways to be creative with admissions essays. One way is to submit pictures and/or sketches with your composition, as personal artwork will almost certainly make your submission more interesting and memorable. So while you are putting the final touches on your essay, don’t hesitate to copy a few personal snapshots from your photo album and include them in your admissions packet.
