Make sure you put highlights of the past three years in it. Only add positive things. Put down any clubs or organizations you participated in. If you were in some sort of student council or peer mediation group, put that in. Also, don't seem too overconfident in the essay, trust me. Make sure it is concentrated on pure facts, dont try to bribe them or kiss up to them(which im sure you wont). Also, make sure to use an online thesaurus or something and switch small words with big words. It helps. when I wrote my essay, I added all the things I have done in the past years, and exagerated them. For example:In 7th grade, I had to take a feild trip to a garden(I know, it was lame) and we picked up litter. So I wrote this down: 'As a member of this community, I feel it is my duty to enviornmentally organize it. In my 7th grade year, I took part in a community service project by picking up trash and litter from a polluted garden. The finished product overjoyed me and I felt the sudden urge to take part in our community's various opportunities to better it.'
Basically, just put in all the highlights, but dont lie, just slightly exagerate it
enjoy! Hope you get accepted!
