Write a Great Personal Statement!

Many college applications require students to submit essays or personal statements. The college application essay is its own literary genre, its own category of composition with distinctive form, style, and content. To write a strong essay, you must familiarize yourself with the genre as you would any genre.

The best essays mix the intellectual with the personal. Your writing should convey intellect, thoughtfulness, insight, but also express who you are as an individual. In other words, approach a personal topic from an intellectual angle.

A few general tips:
  • Follow the instructions.
  • Make it memorable (e.g., by telling an interesting story).
  • Make it personal—something only you could write.
  • Be sure to actually answer the question.
  • Start drafting early.
