Wow! A light bulb just went off in my head when I read this! I will admit I am very guilty of writing boring sentences like the ones you used in your descriptions. I love your “try this” suggestions, you brought everything to life with just a few words. I feel like such a dunce now, because obviously I have been making major boo-boos without even realizing it. I am super excited to be learning all these tips, I’ve shelved my novel for now while I take myself back to writing school and learn to make things better! Are there any sites/books that might offer practice for things like this? I am new to this site so I wasn’t sure what all you have available. Can’t wait to explore! Thanks again for your awesome post and valuable tips!
Hi, my question is general for an essay related to describing your favorite subject (. I’m not applying to any UCs). It actually is about Common App Essay Prompt 1 (interest, background). Do you think that writing about the subject is a good idea? I mean, they know (or suppose) I like it because of my grades, SAT scores, etc. Is it worth using the essay to explain them how much I love Physics or Math? Also, should I write about both Math and Physics or should I just focus on one? I ask about it because I really, really love them and I’m not sure which one of them to choose. Thank you.
Very intersting points you make. I always feel a little under prepared when I go in for an interview and I’m glad to have some advice concerning how to go about answering some of the questions interviewers usually ask. Especially with the job market how it is at the moment, it’s great to have a leg up on the competition any way you can and seem to be quite an important aspect of the hiring process. I may even get some of my friends to ask me some sample questions based off of this post to practice for interviews in the future. Great post! Thanks
