Most importantly I want the paper to stand out and make me look unique to an admissions director. I want the essay to highlight my intuition and creativity. Please do not make up a lie that could be easily cracked, try to conceal it and make it seem as honest as possible. Use unique descriptive words and make the story as attention grabbing as possible, I want the reader to never want to put it down. Finally, the paper must follow the college board’s common application question #1 which asks the applicant to write about something that they feel makes them unique.
