college essay

when not writing to a specific prompt, what is generallly a good idea to write about? I've grown up as a military brat and lived overseas, but (to me at least) that seems too generic. Should I go for it? Whoever answers this, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

  1. Thank you -- I had a wonderful Thanksgiving, feasting and visiting with my family. :-) I hope your holidays have also been enjoyable.

    Growing up as a "military brat" is not very common, so you have some unique experiences to bring to your college. You've been a part of other cultures, and may know other languages. You may have more self-discipline because of your military contacts. I'd emphasize what you've learned by living overseas and how it's affected the person you are now.

  4. Check the individual colleges, many of my essays are required to be less then 500 words, and in some cases less then 200.
