Your college essay should be a brief essay about who you are and what you intend to study at the academic institution of your choosing. You should write an essay that is strong and personal while being specific and focused. You will need to speak about who you are and who you hope to become. You need to connect who you want to become with the institution you believe will help you achieve your goal. You should note what you have studied while in high school; what activities you have joined both in and out of school; and you should write specifically about how the college of your choice meets your needs.
