One Tip for the College Essay

If I could only give one tip to help a student power through your his/her college essay, it would be this: write about something you love to think about.  As you consider topics, don't ask yourself whether something will make you sound smart, or motivated, ask yourself: "Would I enjoy writing about this?"  If the answer is yes, you've got a potential topic.  You'll have more to say, you'll naturally be more interesting, and you will be your best self, if you just start with what you love.
