Today’s episode kicks off a 5 part mini series on the College Admission Essays.
I am reviewing the FOUR buckets of Essays that every student needs in their arsenal of college essays. Who AM I?
What Am I Good At?
What Is My “Coolness” Factor?
Connect Accomplishments With Your Future Major.
And in part 5 of this mini series, I will review supplemental essays and how they differ from the personal statements.
WHO AM I? This essay sheds light on your family, culture, background, and offers context of who you are. Examples of topics include:
- Family: traditions, celebrations, family members who influence you.
- Your background: cultural background, where/how you grew up.
- Life Challenges: death, divorce, learning challenges.
