What exactly is an entrance essay?

Many, not all, universities nowadays recommend an entrance essay as a part of the application process. What exactly is an entrance essay or personal statement, and how in the world are you supposed to write one that helps you get into college? Let’s take a closer look.

There are a number of different ways that you can look at a personal statement, and whichever one seems to click with you should be the way that you approach the topic. Here are the three most common ways that people define the entrance essay.

These entrance essays may differ depending on what the college wants. Sometimes, you may have to write several essays with different requirements for each one, and only one or two of them may actually be an exploration of who you are. Some other ones may require for you to do a little bit of research to complete them.

But don’t ever treat an entrance essay as a way for you to “beg” to get in, or as a narrative resume. Neither one of those will bode well for you in the long run.

In all honesty, an entrance essay is going to vary depending on exactly what the universities that you are applying to want from you. Read through your essays carefully, choose your topics wisely, work through all of the ideas that you have and determine exactly how you want to approach the whole thing.
