College Admission Essay Examples

Writing your college admission essay is one of the hardest things to write. Many questions go through your head, what should i write my college essay about, where do I start, what do I talk about, and how detailed should I be? Here are some college admission essay examples for you to look at and get your ideas flowing.

Example 1

On the surface, I am like most young women: I take school very seriously, I have set goals for the future and I am determined to make them happen. I do not expect anyone to do the work for me.

Example 4

Studying in college is one of the main ways to accomplish my academic and career goals, I need this information and I do not get it all from books. Nevertheless, the best way to obtain knowledge about other countries is through having encounters with students that have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

These college admission essay samples are only the introduction paragraphs in order to help you get started. Each college will have their own topic for you to cover.
