Personal Essay Help

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone, I just want to know any suggestions for the personal essay. Any suggestions on how to go about it? A lot of the stuff I have read seems very broad. I just do not want to sound cliche or over dramatic with my writing. What should be the topic? How should I write it in a unique way? Thank you and have a good one.

My advice, is to just start writing. That is when things can really start to flow. Write for a while, then leave it and come back to what you wrote and review it. Do that a few times and then you can start to see where the essay is taking you to formulate a more grounded narrative.

Another approach would be to outline a few main topics you want to hit on and start writing about those topics. 

Everything you write should be able to answer and relate to the CASPA prompt for your essay. 

Hope this helps!
