In the mad race for getting admitted to the best college our children want to get into, students have lost a sense of who they really are, which, ironically, is what they need to formulate in a winning college essay.
Many want to impress and come with stories of starting orphanages in the developing world or write hardship stories that may not always sound genuine. What’s worse: after the stress of getting a high GPA, and high SAT/ACT scores, the essay is the last hurdle, and many students see it as a bother, and finish it quickly when it is in fact one of the most important pieces of writing they will ever do in their life.
With so many students with high scores, the essay sometimes becomes the only tool with which Admission Counselors can determine whether a student is a right fit for the school. But Admission Counselors have seen it all and have developed a strong BS-detector. The only way to write a winning essay is finding your voice, being original and being authentic.
