Proofread, and then proofread again!

The college essay may seem daunting, but try not to look at it that way. Instead, view it as your chance to make yourself stand out! You have complete control over your essay, and you can even prepare ahead of time by reviewing the Common Application and Coalition Application essay prompts. You should ALWAYS proofread what you write before hitting the ‘submit’ button. Don’t be afraid to let someone else proofread it as well; they may catch mistakes you missed!

Remember that there are real people reading your essay, and they are looking for a reflection of yourself in your writing. So, rather than feel nervous about writing your college essay, feel confident in knowing this is an excellent opportunity to show the admissions committee a genuine glimpse of who you are.
