Any examples on how to start my college resume essay?

Asked by izziee (1points) September 21st, 2010

I am having problems with starting my college resume essay. It should not be an autobiography right? If anyone has tips or examples it be really great.

Does the college you intend to send it to have a prompt on their website? They usually have some kind of guidelines to get you started. It should not be an autobiography though – you are absolutely correct about that. Colleges are looking for skills, interests, and personality traits that makes a good student a good student. You should write about something that either had a profound impact on who you are as a person in general (that still has some relation to who you are as a student) or an academic-related interest particularly one rooted to your intended major.

It’s all really vague unless you know who you are sending it to.

use a quote or a stat. my essay was about how i came to the idea of going into the field of mathematics.
The subject, that about four out of ten Americans hate, is the one that I am going to dedicate my life to. Math is well known for either being like or hated. I like math.
