What should be in a college admissions essay or letter?

Admissions: The Essay or Letter

Find out as exactly as possible what the school is looking for in the application letter or essay. Make sure you meet the deadline. Use your best written English, make the letter or essay as clear as you can, include complete answers to questions and/or the description of what they're looking for, have it proofed by one or more other people who have strong written English skills. Finally, make the corrections and submit clean, white pages with standard margins using a 12-point Ariel, Helvetica or Times font in black ink: Otherwise, if the school has provided instructions for the margins and font, follow those.
