Put the personal back in the college essay
from USA Today
November marks the start of application deadlines for eager college students. Why did so many of them spend time and money having someone else help them create the perfect personal essay? Doesn't that defeat the very point? While strong academics and social curricula are essential to getting into a top school, for over 300 colleges it is the infamous personal essay that gets them into universities. Admission counselors heavily weigh the heartstrings pulled when presented with a well-written story outlining the applicant's young life. For many, this will make or break their acceptance to a top-tier school.
