Some students may dread the written portion of college applications. Maybe writing isn’t their favorite subject or because the prompts stare at us for hours, telling us that we must write something perfect. While this can be terrifying, here are some tips that you can take to ease your process and have a more outstanding written application.

Students aren’t going to become stellar candidates through their first drafts. A necessary step in written applications is beginning our process early on, in preparation of developing various versions and outlines. An extra tip to take is allowing at least one other individual to review and read your writing — you will be surprised of the grammatical or simple errors we don’t pick up on in our work.
