Thinking about Organization in an Application Essay

An application essay must be well-organized to capture the attention of the admissions committee. An essay which rambles, changes topics in the middle of a discussion, fails to complete a thought or to respond fully to a prompt is not a well-organized application essay.

How you organize your application essay is as important as what you write in response to the prompt.
