Writing my college admission essays would have to be a very significant moment in my compostion development For the first time in my educational career I was challenged with a writing assignment in which I could not completely understand College applications essays presented me with prompts such as Who was your greatest influence in life or What are your life dreams At a first glance I was not sure how to properly respond to these essays Of course I had received similar writing prompts in school but never had my target audience been so difficult to approach How was I suppose express myself in an essay addressed to people that would have a lasting impact on my future For the first time in my life I was forced to write a paper that did not truly come from my heart The problem with admissions essays is that they forced me to create a reserved censored response to the prompt In my past writings I had always written exactly what I had felt regardless of how controversial the issue because my target audience was always a high school English teacher and not a college admissions officer The college admission office could never truly understand what kind of person I was unless I had opened up and expressed my true uninhibited emotions and wrote about myself without reservation Of course I could never have written this way if I wanted to remain competitive in the admissions game Colleges did not really want to know everything about me but were only out to discover my good qualities For instance if I submitted an essay on how my life changed when I got out of drug rehabilitation or how I my greatest influence is a high school dropout I would reveal a weakness in my personality Shameful personality traits are pieces of my life that would have misguided the effectiveness
