Stay right here if you’re applying to a college and you have to overcome the admission process. This might seem daunting to you at this moment, but after reading this guide and preparing meticulously, then success is just beyond that.

Simply visit Studyfy and hire an expert writer to do it for you. Studyfy provides admission essay services to students from all walks of life with the click of your mouse. Why not invest in your success?

Moving on, here are tips and tricks to master the admission essay: 

  1. Winning Over The Admission Board Members

Want to pass and be admitted? Approach this in more than one way. Strategize. Execute. What do we mean by this? Here’s one idea, get to know who’s on the actual committee of the admissions board of the college you’re applying to. Get to the bottom of what they want and what they’re looking for. 

But we’re all humans, and it’s easy to assume some of their expectations of you. By speculation alone, let’s assume they want an applicant who:

  • Succeeds and graduate when they’re accepted
  • Brings more honor, prestige, and recognition to their university
  • Contributes to the academic community, in one way or the other

These are broad but pinpoint to the core of human desires and expectations. They want a student who won’t bring down the university but will uplift it in some way or another. They might not openly admit this, but it should be considered.

With that in mind, you can include specific elements in your essay to present yourself as someone they’ll need or appreciate. Ask yourself these questions before writing: 

  • How do I show the board that I’m determined to succeed at their university, and what can I genuinely contribute to their community?
  • How can I uplift them through my own successes? How could I bring prestige to this university?
  1. Devise A Plan And Prepare

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but success in your examinations could be. Here’s a good idea to keep you organized, calm, and collected.

  • Write down the essays you’ll need to do and their deadlines.
  • Specify their word counts, prompts, deadlines, and requirements when writing.
  • If there are multiple essays, write down which one you should write first, which can go second, which can go last, etc. By managing your time, you’re eliminating any added stress and increasing your chances of succeeding.

Keep this information somewhere in a notebook or as a document on your computer or mobile device. Make sure to make it readable and organized so you can look at the information swiftly without too much hassle.

  1. Make Them Want to Read More 

Keep the readers intrigued by creating open loops in your sentences and phrases. This means that you can’t write everything down in one sentence, but you need to slowly reveal the information through a bunch of sentences. For example:

“The ones who write about blood get the spotlight. It’s blatant and clear enough to observe. Violent themes showcasing the grotesque and dark side of the human psyche are getting more attention these days….” 

Do you see what we mean? We started with a phase that was a bit enigmatic and mysterious, and we slowly extrapolated from there. Giving way for its meaning later. That is an open loop. That will keep them reading your piece. Keep the audience guessing, it might be an academic paper, but it sure doesn’t have to be boring.

The more interesting you are in writing, the more intrigue you arouse in those evaluating you. And the more intrigue they have about you (in a positive sense), the more chances you’ll get of being noticed and picked out from the crowd to be admitted. Everybody wins. 

At the end of the day, yes, you will have to take care of grammar, spelling, and all the rigid rules of academic writing, but don’t forget to actually write something interesting. Leave some substance and leave some impact.

  1. Reveal Your Character

Many universities rate an applicant’s character and personal qualities. These are actually one of the main factors they assess when they evaluate you. So, how do you measure this? Well, the character is evaluated in three places during the application process:

  • Character is evaluated through your essay. This is their most prominent reference for your character. That’s why it’s so important to write about yourself and deliver it in an excellent manner.
  • During the interview process.
  • They can assess your character through what you do in your free time, such as personal hobbies and extracurricular activities.

Be sure to talk about your values, principles, and beliefs since these can make or break you. But aim for them to make you.

  1. Tone Matters

The tone of your application is another important element you need to master and use as a tool when writing your essay. This is because your character is revealed in the overall tone of the essay.

Strive for balance in your writing. Highlight your accomplishments and the positive ways you perceive yourself but don’t overdo it. Write about personal anecdotes if you must, but when you’re writing about something negative, you should write about the silver lining in that story. The lesson that you’ve learned and are grateful for.

Here’s a pro tip: think of the essay as a public motivational speech. Put enough relatable elements in your essay but not too much, just enough to make people feel a connection to it.

We wish you the best of luck with any upcoming admission tests you might have. We hope our readers can use our tips and tricks to launch them to success. Writing can be complex, and when there are so many things to consider before even writing, it’s even more difficult.
