Having guided hundreds of students and read a myriad of rough drafts and essays over the years, we’ve seen our share of brilliant essays written by stellar students — many of whom have matriculated at prestigious universities. Among them, one essay stands out above the rest. It was written in response to a Common Application essay topic that was recently eliminated: Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
Common Application essay topics have changed this year, 2013, and for private school applications you need to check your target schools to see what Supplemental questions they ask, if any. Keep track throughout the summer and early fall as the applications go on line.
