    Here's the deal, the early application has to be postmarked monday. I've been sitting in front of the fucking computer for the last 48 hours trying to write some sort of personal essay that will justify my existance as a human being. It's not going very well.

    Please share your experiences with this degrading, awful process.

    thats the trick, they weed out 60% of the people who aren't motivated enough to even write ANYTHING down or even DO the application process cuz their lazy. Just write something thats not total crap and stuff.....ive never had to write an essay about my self to get into university, but i had to write one....anyways, i just kept it humble and as vague as possible

    That's some good preparation for midterms and finals. Good luck man...I wish I could help, but since I slept through my whole application process, and most of college, I can't really offer any advice.

    write about why something you do alot relates to your education...i know people who have written papers on why they like stars and got a good scholarship from that.

    use the common app essays theyr so vague that you can pretty much make your own essay out of it. i used a paper taht i wrote in the 10th grade about my friend jons passing. other than that id say dont over exend yourself. i had to apply to 13 schools and it was all a huge pain in the ass.

    Its hell while doing it, but its quite a satisfying feeling when you finish it. That is, if your essay is good.

    Have fun with that.

    Mine was of ridiculously poor quality. I drifted off topic on numerous occassions, and I believe at one point I started rambling about the importance of amusement parks in our society. But hey, I got in.

    I'm pretty sure the main purpose of entrance essays is to guage whether or not you can actually put a coherent sentence together, and if you can do work and aren't a complete fucktard.

    What's your topic?
