Prepare an Outline

Before you begin, it is more than important to think about what you want to say. Allow yourself to explore the different aspects you can write about. Decide which discussion you want to impart. Do you want to write about an experience you want to share to your reader? Or would you rather write about an ideology or perspective that you wish would inspire and engage your reader?

Create a Great Introduction

Take your time in determining how to start your essay. The entire feel and mood of your personal statement essay depends much on it. Use a line that will grab the attention of your reader. Make your reader think and be curious about you. It can be a statement, an ideology, a mantra, a quotation, a question or even an idiom.

Avoid Writing in Circles

Choose every word you write in your college essay carefully.  As much as possible, pose your points after points and never repeat them unless it is for emphasis. Avoid repeating your points over and over again.  Say it once and move on.  Instead make sure that your college essay has a thesis which is backed by specific examples. 

Ask for Second Opinion

Share your essay to your friend or family. Ask for their feedback and opinion.  This way you can learn if your message was understood and if there are other areas for improvement.
