The Importance of Essays

Your test scores and grades may be good, but so are those of many other applicants. In fact, the average scores at many of the top institutions in the nation are remarkably high. Because of that, plus the fact that some colleges no longer even require standardized test scores, the admissions landscape has changed drastically for college applicants in the past decade. Today, college application essays have become the most influential component of the application process in many ways. Your college admissions essays are your best opportunity to communicate directly with the admissions officials, who look to college essays to find reasons to select one candidate over another. When you’re reviewing files from two candidates with equally impressive scores and grades, and you only have room for one, you have to use something to make your decision. That’s where essays come in.

What you share of yourself in your college application essay reflects not only your qualifications but also your individuality and uniqueness. A great essay is a compelling story that is written well; because of that, it draws the reader in and leaves him or her feeling like he has truly learned something special about you when finished reading. If your essay is anything less than that, you’re not maximizing your chance of admission.

Tips for Stronger Essays

A university application essay that effectively articulates your aspirations and career goals ensures that you stand out from other applicants. In doing so, however, you also need to avoid clichés – nothing sinks an otherwise-strong essay faster than overused content. The best way to avoid mistakes of this nature is to keep your content as specific and personal as possible. No matter what you’re discussing in your college application essays, be sure that the information you’re providing is intimately connected to you.

Sharing real-life experiences in your college personal statement makes for compelling reading and underscores what you would bring to a college campus. Use your admission essay to make that personal connection and your application will stand out to the admissions officer who reads it. Considering that many admissions officials will review dozens or even hundreds of applications a day, standing out from the crowd can massively improve your chance of admission.

Use EssayEdge's expertise to bring you closer to getting admitted to the college of your choice. Remember, improving your college application essays could be the difference between an acceptance and rejection when decisions are sent out.
