Common Application Essays

Do you want to get into college? Well, there are essays you submit for admission, and the ones you'll likely be asked to do are the Common Application Essays. Curious which colleges ask for the Common Application Essays? Well, click here! 

I need rough drafts of ALL of the following options by the last day in February! They should be in one Microsoft Word document, and each option needs to be 500 - 650 words. The total word count of the document will be between 2500 - 3250 words.  

Option #1: Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. (If it fits, you can use your law of life essay for this!)

Option #2: Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?

Option #3: Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?

Option #4: Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?

Option #5: Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.
