If I had the time, it would be possible for me to spend an entire year writing my essays.Â And I still wouldn’t be happy with them.
Deadlines are important.Â My first deadline is still about a month away, but I’ve set a “soft” deadline to get a draft to my reviewers to ensure I don’t waste too much time nit picking my own work.Â Other people can do that for me.
The “career path / why do you want to go here” question is pretty much part of every essay package I need to write.Â The problem is the word length is different for each.Â I basically need to tell the same story in 200, 400, and 1000 word count versions.
Low word count limits suck.Â It’s really frustrating when you have a great essay to write, but only get to use 250 words to do so.Â C’mon, this is my ringer essay!
I scored pretty well in Sentence Correction and I’m feeling the after effects of it on my essays.Â I now notice allÂ of my errors in parallelism, dangling modifiers, and subject verb agreement and feel the urge to immediately correct them.
Speaking with alumni makes essay writing easier.Â Â Writing essays is likeÂ trying to impress someone on a date.Â It’s great when you can do some recon beforehand and figure out what he or she likes.Â That way you can tailor your essays and writeÂ them with confidence and precision.
My GMAT score feels like it happenedÂ 10 years ago.Â I know I shouldÂ gain confidenceÂ from it, but the essays have a way of cutting you down to size.
