How to write an essay for a commission
Goals that involve active action rather than passive “existence” are more effective
Based on my experience with clients on this essay, the most effective answers explain who you are, what you have done, and what you plan to do. Abstract statements such as “integrity is most important to me” are very difficult to describe, and vice versa, an essay that begins with the words “it is most important for me to accept things as they are, and not as I would like to see them” suggests examples of how you acted in accordance with this credo. The first option concerns the state, and the second - vigorous activity. This is not a hard and fast rule. Surely you think I can write my college essay about why integrity is most important, but I think it will be easier to set a goal that is active because it will link your past actions with your future plans.
Explain to the admissions committee why something matters most to you
Some candidates forget that this essay is in two parts, and in the second part, they must explain why they answered the question in this way. Look at the whole story - at people, situations, events - and find what connects all the elements of your story.
Council number 5. Your essay should be emotional in tone and creative in form
The best essays are always touching, sentimental and make you smile. When admissions officers read your story, they should feel emotion, not because you are trying to touch the strings of their hearts, but because everything written is permeated with your passion and passion.
While this advice is last, it also provides direction when looking for an answer to the question of what matters most to you: Let your emotions guide you as well as your intellect.
