The admissions essay is very important. My advice for the essay is to pick 5 stories from your personal life that demonstrate who you are. Work them out. Be aware that each school has their own length requirement. Some schools require 2 pages and some require 3 pages. Personalize each essay for each school by including a small paragraph at the end of the essay. State the schools name and why your qualities(from the stories) make you a good fit for the school.
