What I Might Write An Entrance Essay On If I Were About To Start College
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I started college in the fall of 1993. Back then, students did not have to write an essay when they applied to college. Instead, they simply filled out the application paperwork, mailed it in, and then, upon learning that they had been accepted, they packed their bags and prepared to begin their college career. If I were starting college now, however, I would have many life-changing experiences to choose from for my essay.

One idea would be an essay about writing. In this essay, I might write about my frustration with vanity publishing as I repeatedly sent in poems that I had worked very hard on in the hopes of winning the $1,000 grand prize. I might also mention how my mood changed from frustration to happiness and excitement when, years later, I discovered that I could start a blog, write and publish articles online, and earn money from my publishing activity. There are also other experiences that I could write on, as well.

A second idea would be for me to write about a car accident that I was involved in while attending a summer journalism conference during high school. Many of us had been up late the night before, because we were trying to finish the newspaper before the conclusion of the conference. The next day, we were on our way to a seminar, but we never made it. Our driver, who had been up late with us, fell asleep at the wheel. Several of us were injured in the wreck, but fortunately, no one was killed. I suffered a sprained ankle. I was in pain, and I got to hop around on crutches for a bit, but I was otherwise alright. I am relieved to have survived, and I am also glad that those who were there also survived. We were all allowed to continue our lives and pursue our dreams. There is also a third idea that I could use for an entrance essay topic.

I could write about the frustration of typing on a typewriter and about how much less frustration I experienced when I finally got a laptop computer. Having a computer has helped me to feel much less stress when I type something, such as an article, because I can easily fix the mistakes that I make. My computer also allows me to save my pieces and edit them later. Finally, having a computer has helped me to increase my typing speed, which is valuable in the writing and publishing industry.

Fortunately, I have graduated from college. Therefore, I do not have to worry about writing an entrance essay. I know, however, that many people out there are writing essays as part of their college applications. If you are one of these individuals, I wish you peace, so that you can write the best essay possible. Have a great week, and good luck.
