Just Write FOUR Sentences
Start by identifying the FOUR ESSENTIAL parts of your personal story...
SENTENCE 1: The Initial Plan
Identify the INITIAL PLAN which sets in place the foundation of your story and essay.
SENTENCE 2: The Anticipated Outcome
Identify the next part of your story, the ANTICIPATED OUTCOME. This will create depth and meaning from which you will draw a relevant message.
SENTENCE 3: The Setback
Next describe your SETBACK. Every GOOD story has a complication or failure and your story MUST HAVE ONE ALSO!
SENTENCE 4: The Discovery
Finally, identify the DISCOVERY. It’s not enough that things didn’t turn out as planned; you need to have learned something, gained an insight, or grown in some way. What did your story teach you?
Identify YOUR Story... Write a WINNING Essay
Our four part process starts by writing your story with just four simple sentences. These four sentences create the foundation of your entire essay. The software then guides you as you identify a relevant and meaningful message and theme. Once you have a story and message, you can easily identify a “Life Lesson” and explain what you have learned and how you have grown. Finally, you link your story, message and life lesson to the application itself. If you follow this simple process, you will write a great essay.
Step 1: Pick a Story
Identify a GOOD story by writing just FOUR SENTENCES.
Step 2: Find Your Message
Everything is in the FOUR SENTENCES, including a deep and meaningful message.
Step 3: describe what you learned
Explain what you learned from your story.
Step 4: use the magic link
Finish your essay and link your personal story to the college application.
