Writing the College Admissions Essay – DIARY OF A COLLEGE ADMISSIONS ESSAY – ENTRY #3

October 2, 2012

I hate my topic! Teaching a kid how to dive? It’s pathetic. Who cares? What does it say about me? I have a lot of free time on my hands? I know how to keep my chin tucked? It’s okay, I’ve still got plenty of time. I’ll come up with another one. Gotta go brainstorm.

Got a new topic for my college essay. Drumroll…. B-d-d-d-d-d-d! I’m going to write about last summer when I decided I would take photographs of all the senior citizens in our neighborhood. Then I framed the photos and gave them to the seniors as a gift. I know I’m not the greatest photographer in the world but every person was so happy to get their picture when I was done. Learned a ton from the old people, they were all so smart and nice and funny. Probably learned some other stuff, too, about… well, I’ll get into that when I start writing. Definitely a “significant experience” (perfect for Question One on the Common App.). Really excited now, this will be great!
