And though people generally tend to enjoy writing about themselves, the admissions essay is usually viewed a little differently.
They obviously require more thought-out, planned, and in-depth responses.
So instead of making up an answer (which will likely be pretty transparent) take the opportunity to actual investigate the school you are applying to-it may turn out that its not the best school for you!
This is your chance to stand out from all the other applicants.
Your personal goals essay should communicate your professional ambitions in personal terms.
So for example, if there is a gap in education (for instance with transfer students) or a poor academic report, low test scores, or something of this nature, the admissions essay is a chance to clarify and explain these issues.
Though a specific question may not be asked regarding this, if there is a real pressing concern that you'd like to explain, there should be a way to work it into your essay one way or the other (or simply add an additional note or section to the essay).
What you supply should be useful and appropriate, and just enough to provide the reviewer with a context for your essay.
For example, if you plan to talk about your struggle with learning English as a second language, you should obviously first explain to the reader what your first language is, where you are from, how long you've been living where you are and so on.
Many things influence our development and major life choices, they generally include; environment, close relationships, social status/class, and special happenings or events.
Even though many students may just select schools for very simple or superficial reasons, reviewers generally don't want to hear that you've chosen their school because your best friend is also applying or because its close to home.
