PDF Guide: US application essays

The main thing to bear in mind when you’re preparing to write your US application essays is that most US essay prompts are intended to help you tell the admissions team more about yourself, so that you stop just being some grades on a piece of paper, but instead a full and dynamic personality that they can imagine having as part of their student body.

When you sit down to write your essay, spend time thinking about what experience or passion in your life defines you and what you would be most excited to write about. In many cases, this will be the basis of a good college admissions essay, and it will make it easier for you to put across your enthusiasm, which is always infectious!

In this guide, we will walk you through how the various different pieces of writing works, alongside some guidance from admissions teams and some examples that you can interact with.
