Writing and Rewriting Your College Essay(s)
The best essays are the ones that have been carefully edited and rewritten.
The best writing comes from the process of writing, rewriting, and more rewriting.
Delete anything in the essay that does not relate to your main argument. Do you use transition? Are your introduction and conclusions more than summaries? Did you find every single grammatical error?
Keep writing and rewriting until you have a powerfully written, compelling, and concise essay!
