The essay is an important part of the college admission application. It provides students with the opportunity to connect on a more personal level with the admissions office while showcasing their creative writing skills. Check out my conversation with Clairissa Talley from Baylor University as she shares tips for writing a great college essay.

Clairissa discussed how students can use the essay to:

  • Stand out in the admissions process
  • Share what’s important to them and have their voice heard
  • Demonstrate who they are beyond the transcript, test scores and resume.
