i suppose it could if it impacted you in such a way. and a service trip, in my opinion, is certainly selfless.

There is tons of information on the internet regarding writing common application for college entrance. There are many that go into much more depth then I can type.. or rather that you want to read right now.

kk do you know if an essay like a college essay should be about 4 paragraphs
anonymous
  • anonymous
if you can work the essay into a story which reveals what you enjoy, your passions, and really let them see who you are as a person.. cause that is special in itself.

oh ok! im currently a senior in high school at what stage of the college application process do u think i should be in
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm.. that is a subjective question. I dont think it is about what stage you should be in .. rather that you are in the process of being registered for school period.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it also depends on what schools you are looking at

It would be nice I guess for time sake to know where you are going to school by Feb.. but if you didnt find out til june i suppose it wouldnt matter THAT much
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
with the lower profile colleges.. their entrance generally isnt that extensive.. but obviously, if you are anxious to start school again next spring and go experience college life.. then you probably want to get those applications completed soonish.

Take a risk! Make sure it's not a universal topic (very specific to you) and make it seem intelligent; use humor, sarcasm, or connect emotionally...depending on what your personality is like...just embody yourself through your writing. And remember to show, not tell!
