Your essay alone is unlikely to win you admission to coveted programs. The essay does, however, offer your best chance to distinguish yourself among qualified candidates for admission.
In these applications, charm won’t cut it. Technical elements of the essay—grammar, spelling, punctuation—must be impeccable. The true challenge lies in conveying your potential to benefit from a specific program and to use your education to benefit others. Additionally, your essay should inspire confidence in admission officers that your presence in their programs will contribute qualities that are distinctive—and irresistible.
Communicating these ideas in a strictly limited number of words requires thoughtful strategy and artful expression.
