First of all, have a look at the the essay prompt, the essay title, that you’ve selected from the the list of possibilities. And then ask yourself, what is this essay title actually asking me, because far too many students wander away from the title. And it’s very important that you are focused on the title. So now you’ve got that idea in your head, you need to plan you need to brainstorm ideas, so just jot down random ideas as they come into your head. And once you’ve got all these ideas down, then it’s a question of ordering them. Now an essay consists of a series of paragraphs, and each paragraph will deal with a particular a specific idea or topic. And the paragraphs need to be linked with transitions, so the whole thing flows from the beginning to the end.
You also need to consider using imagery to make your essay a little brighter and more interesting and fun for the reader.
The introduction is very important, because the introduction to any essay is what is really going to set the tone or of the essay in your readers mind. If you get off to a good start, he or she will be positively inclined towards you. And similarly the conclusion because that’s the last idea the last impression that your reader is left with. So all these things need to be factored in to your college essay.
Finally, of course, make sure you get some feedback from other people, perhaps your teacher or your counsel, or maybe even your friends, because you certainly can’t see everything or think of everything yourself. And last but not least, make sure that you proofread carefully, you will be expected to write this in accurate, correctly spelled, grammatically correct English.
