Writing an effective college essay

“Within the past seven years, I have moved 369 times.” How can that be? I certainly wanted to read more and find out. That sentence was the first sentence of a college essay that immediately captured my attention. Although the essay was one that was presented by a colleague at a workshop I attended and was not one sent to VCU, I have never forgotten that essay’s first sentence. Capturing the reader’s attention at the start is an essential element of a good essay because your essay is when the admissions staff meets you, albeit on paper. That first sentence certainly made me want to read more and to learn more about the applicant.

What is it that the college admissions committee is looking for in the application essay? The college essay is your opportunity to let us learn something significant about you. It’s an opportunity for you to tell us a true story about yourself. You can talk about your talents, values, leadership skills; or you can describe an experience that has changed or affected you. It is also a time when you can explain anything in your application that might need further information. Your essay will provide us with insight about you that goes beyond your transcript and test scores. In addition, we will learn about your writing skills, organizational skills as well as your ability to convey your thoughts using proper grammar and spelling.

Here are some quick tips for writing a good essay:

• Answer the question

• Spend most of the time on the introduction

• Grab the attention of the reader

• Do not summarize in the introduction

• Be original and be yourself

• Give examples and be concrete

• Do not use a Thesaurus for your essay

• Use clear imagery, avoid a flowery or pretentious style

• Be sure the body of the essay is related to the introduction

• Be sure that the flow is logical

• Be sure to end with closure

• Spell check and proof carefully

So, are you wondering how that essay I mentioned evolved? Are you curious about how the student could have moved 369 times in seven years? Well, the answer’s quite simple: his parents were divorced and lived apart from each other. The student told his story about how he moved between his parents’ homes every other weekend because he couldn’t choose one over the other.

This essay wasn’t about the extraordinary or the unusual, but about an experience unique to the author that engaged the reader. That’s good storytelling. And good storytelling makes for a good essay.

VCU is now part of the Common Application

by Christal Holmes, Assistant Director for Admissions Communications

Earlier in the summer, VCU became an exclusive member of the Common Application for new, first-time freshmen only. The application is available online only.

Transfer students or returning VCU students should visit our website for more information regarding their application process.

In addition to submitting the Common Application, freshman applicants must send official high school transcripts and either SAT or ACT scores. VCU also requires at least one letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, or other authority in order to complete your application package. When applicants complete the Common Application, they will be asked to submit recommender information. Recommenders will be sent an email on the applicants behalf requesting that they complete a recommendation.

Replacing the personal statement from our former application are essay prompts that all applicants must answer if they’re completing the Common Application. Applicants must choose one of the following topics and prepare an essay of no more than 650 words, using the prompt to inspire and structure responses:

Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

  • Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
  • Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
  • Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there and why is it meaningful to you?
  • Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

In addition to answering one of the above essay topics, there are two additional VCU-specific writing prompts that all applicants are asked to complete:

  • Describe a challenging situation you’ve faced. Briefly state the situation, how you responded and why, would you have done anything differently, has it affected or shaped who you are today?
  • As you start your college career, what is your primary goal as a student and how have you prepared to meet this goal, how do you plan to succeed, how do you feel you will do at VCU?

Applicants to our School of the Arts programs should also refer to the SOTA admissions website for program-specific application requirements, such as portfolios or auditions: http://arts.vcu.edu/admissions/how-to-apply/undergraduate/.

Our application fee for this year is $50 and must be paid when submitting the Common Application online; we do not accept checks or money orders for the payment of application fees.

Our deadlines for applying will continue to be December 1 for scholarship consideration and January 15 for regular decision. We will continue to review applications on a rolling basis (no early action or early decision); however, applications received after the January 15 deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis only.

VCU COLLEGE ESSAY: Page 87 Of My Autobiography

M, N with my two older brothers, N and G, when she met my dad, who was and is still working at the Embassy as a Foreign Service officer. Three years later, on an early summer day, xxx, or as my family knows me, xx, was born in xxx.

The first year of my life, my family lived six months in R, V and six months in B until we were sent to P, H. On the flight to H, there were two nuns, four journalists, and my family. Enough said. I don’t remember much about H, but I was told within the first 24 hours I got sick, power was on only eight hours a day, and I spoke the native language fluently. In 1994, my little brother and best friend C was born. After H, we were sent to the bustling city B, A. My best memories of A were developing a strong love for soccer, and swimming. While attending the French school, every recess I was the only skirt running up and down the dirt soccer field, pushing the boys down and scoring goals. On the weekends, I lived in the pool in my backyard. I’d swim around so much my parents would call me “un pescadito”, which in Spanish means “little fish”.

After living three great years in B, once again we had to move. By my seventh birthday, I was living in V. From first to seventh grade, I had many ups and downs. My ups included my love for sports. I joined competitive leagues such as soccer, swim team, and basketball. Due to sports, I became a strong leader, fiercely competitive, and a team player who valued self-discipline. Other than sports I lived a typical child hood, catching fire flies in July and building snow forts in January with my friends. My downs were when my older brother N left to live with his biological father in N, and when he later enlisted in the US Marines. My family and I suffered tremendously, but with time, it made all of us, including my brother, appreciate one another more.

In 2006, we moved to B, C. Being a 14 year old drama queen, I felt leaving my life and friend’s was the end of world. With time I grew up and realized that by assimilating into C, I would live once in a life time experiences and build lasting friendships. I revitalized my roots through music and food, and perfected my Spanish. C also took me away from a fairytale view on the world, and opened my eyes to poverty and war. From my school, houses made of tin metal, mud and cardboard could be spotted with an entire family and a scrawny pet dog barely scrapping by to survive. As the poor struggled, the higher class families also suffered due to the rebellion of the FARC guerillas against the C government. Stories of bombs on buses, kidnappings, and murder dominated C news channels.

On my 17 th birthday, I moved from B to my current home L. Finishing my last two years in this unique country, I was amazed when I saw my first Cholita (indigenous women) carrying her aguayo, a colorful cloth bag perfectly holding her baby. In my new school, I continued my love for sports, and discovered new passions in fashion and theatre. I have been a starter on both the varsity basketball and soccer teams, I’ve worked both onstage and backstage in fashion shows, modeled in fashion magazines, worked as a fashion stylist, and took part in my school play. I acted as a homosexual Latino man, pretty wild. Fashion and theatre have given me great work experience, and have taught me to never conform to the norms of society, and to never be afraid of being myself.

I believe these qualities, as well as my multi-cultural background, makes me uniquely prepared to take advantage of the VCU experience.
