Hi all! Today I'm reading the common app essay that got me into the Ivy League - specifically, my dream school, Columbia University, where I applied ED. I hope that my essay helps out any of you who are struggling, either this year or in the future! The essay is really your chance to come alive for your admissions officers, so you don't want to pass up the opportunity to make it as strong as possible.
My common app essay certainly wasn't perfect, and yours will be sure to look very different from mine. That's completely fine and normal! So long as you tell your story and put in your best effort, your personal statement will be incredible. Just be sure to get people to proofread it before submitting! You can always get in touch with me at email@example.com for help with college applications, as well as any other kind of application and academic or extracurricular pursuit.
Stay tuned for more videos on all things Columbia, applications, and writing! Next up, I'll be going into depth on my personal experiences with writing camps like the Iowa Young Writers' Studio and competitions like the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
