I'm planning on applying for college in Washington state, do you have any tips or advice? Thanks!
If you haven’t written your personal essay yet, I advise writing about something you’re passionate about and giving it a good narrative. A lot of people feel obligated to write about their Most Harrowing Experiences to show “look how much I’ve survived”, even if that doesn’t always illustrate their character and drive. Even a relatively mundane topic written in a unique and interesting way may showcase your individuality and talents better than recounting sad personal trials.
