Going Crazy to Get into College

Posted on March 11, 2008 @ 2:19 am

When I was writing my college application essay, I would write the same things over again and again. I would delete and start all over, write a few lines and then delete and start all over again. I know that I made it a lot harder than it needed to be and I put a lot of stress on myself. I just really wanted this to be one of those essays that you remember reading.

At one point I was ready to break down and buy a ready, made to order essay from the Internet. Not to send into the school, but to see what other people were writing about. I didn’t want to waste my money, though, as I was going to need it if I ever got this essay written and made it into the school of my dreams.

I did eventually finish, but in the end I was so stressed out that I was sure I would never be able to further my education. What was I going to do when it came time to write my MBA essay? I would probably go insane and have to be admitted to an institution at that point. Oh well, at least I have a good many years to worry about that. Right now, I am going to mail this essay before I change my mind and start all over again.
