A significant number of the visitors to my Writing Help Central Web site are looking for help in writing their college admission essays. That's not surprising when one considers how difficult these are to write well. At the same time, it's VERY important that they are well-written, if one hopes to get into the college or university program of their choice.

Indeed, the admission essay and/or personal statement are among the most critical documents making up an application package for admission to most college or university programs.

As entry into college and university programs becomes increasingly competitive, the importance of a well-written admission essay or essay-set cannot be over-emphasized. These essays are normally required for consideration of admission into both the graduate and undergraduate programs, although the specific requirements may vary at each level.

Aside from the standard academic performance metrics, such as GPA, these admission essays are the one chance that a student has to show who they are, what they've done, and how they can express themselves. The essay goes beyond the actual academic achievement to show something about the actual "person" behind the application.

It's a chance for the applicant to show their human side to the officials that review admission applications.

Every year, colleges and universities are flooded with thousands of applications for hundreds of different programs. The admission essay and/or personal statement is the one part of the application submission that allows a candidate to differentiate him/her self - to stand out somehow from the crowd among all of those other applicants.

So, what I have done here is to put together this central "admission essay resources page" containing links to the various admission essay information resources that are hidden away in various places on my Writing Help Central Web site.
