Memorable Essay : My New Brother - Director of admissions - Gettysburg College
“Each year there are essays that are shared in the office,” says Gail
Sweezey, director of admissions at Gettysburg College. The essays
that seem to impress the Gettysburg College admission office most
are those written from the heart. They present honest images of the
writers and their feelings.
One essay that Sweezey recalls was about when the writer was 14
years old and her mother had another child. “That event completely
changed her life. She did a wonderful job of capturing what her life
was like at home and how this event had changed it. It was clear from
her essay how thoughtful and responsible she was. It was a personal
essay that really worked for her,” says Sweezey.
Your passion and feelings when writing on a subject that you truly
care about will naturally show through in your essay. Use this fact
when picking a topic to make sure that your choice helps you write
a better essay.
