Writing is a Multi-Level Activity!
What can you see offhand what contributes most to a well written essay?
Main Points to Remember Length Doesnt matter The essay readers look at thousands of essays so they dont care about –more about quality! The Question will ask about a broad topic that lends itself to interpretation
These are a few examples of essay topics: Read
Each question can be answered using any specific topic… But…. Dont wander….
And then there is the narrative…..
Points for Narrative Writing Write about one issue in your life or that of someone close to you Make it dramatic: maybe an existential dilemma in your life Tell a story about your issue or point Ask yourself –What happened, What did I learn, How did it change things?
Making Stuff Up
But be careful….
The DATE Or approaching the Essay like a good dinner date!
Organizing your good old fashioned Essay: The First Date
Reminder The College Admissions Officers have the option of seeing your essay along with the rest of your score…. So do your best!
