Admission Essay Tips: Be Genuine

Intense competition

Writing admission essays is perhaps one of the most stressful times in the life of a high school student. The urban myth that a poor student can gain admission to a good university on the basis of the admission essay while another bright student cannot has some truth in it in this case. The student is under pressure to put their achievements on paper and explain to admissions officers why they choose their university and why the university should choose them in return. Many students, especially those planning on going to universities with high rates of rejection know that they face stiff competition from students all over the world. So they have to put their best foot forward.

Being genuine

Being genuine is a sure way of representing oneself fairly and ensuring that the admission officer identifies with the student. Being genuine has several advantages in writing an admission essay.

It does not hurt to show the admission officers the best of the student in the essay, after all that is the purpose. The student should however be careful not to cross the thin line between a good representation of themselves and being dishonest.
