    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.

    I guess one thing that a lot of college student do is they try to cram all their stuff into the essay.. and it becomes a list and hard to read

    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.

    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.

    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!
