How to Write a Common App Essay

Writing a common application essay requires patience and due diligence that a writer must possess. The following and short and quick tips on how to write this kind of essay. As a start, the writer must first sit on his thinking chair and plan what topic or idea to write down and place emphasis. The writer must ask himself if there are any stories that would showcase his dreams and passions in life such as the career job he’s vying for, or the time when the family bought a new puppy and that day was considered to be memorable, or how one of the family members was hospitalized and how everyone helped and contributed to being a part of the solution.

While planning, the writer must make an outline of how he wants the essay to begin and to end, or what must be included in the body of the text. It is important to ask someone, particularly a good writer to be your editor as the essay is concluded. This will help check for any grammatical error or mistakes in the paper. Don’t use clich├ęs by using flowery words and too complex sentences. Going straight to the point is always better than beating around the bush. Having a direct approach will be more understandable and formal in this class of essay.
