Professional Application Essay Help
There is nothing wrong with getting professional assistance with your admissions essay and before you choose a professional, you want to find out if he has at least ten years of experience in helping people write admissions essays and if he has other credentials such as a bachelors or masters degree and other certifications or affiliation with professional organizations. The professional should be easy to get along with and he should respect your wishes as to what information you want included in your essay. You can locate a good professional through your guidance counselor, friends and relatives or by going to the companies' websites.
Other Sources of Professional Help
If you cannot afford to hire a professional, there are other ways to get professional help for the admissions essay. Attend local seminars that are sponsored by colleges to learn about the best ways to write the essay. Visit the library and bookstore for books and magazines about composing admissions essays and you can also watch online videos by experts on this topic. Another idea is to meet with your teacher for advice.
Be Open to Correction
When you complete the rough draft of your essay, you should have it read by your teacher or another professional and if they see a few errors in it, you should understand why they found the errors and be willing to make small changes or rewrite the essay if necessary. Generally people will need to rewrite their essays at least a second time before the final product looks its' best. If you disagree with the professional, respectfully mention your reasons for the disagreement.
