How do I decide on a college application theme?

Hello everyone, I'm a high school junior, and I've heard that having a theme for your college application can help make it more cohesive and memorable. How do I decide on a theme that best represents me and my experiences? Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi there! It's great that you're thinking about a theme for your college application. A well-chosen theme can indeed make your application stand out and help admissions officers remember you. To decide on a theme that represents you, start by reflecting on your life experiences, interests, and passions. What aspects of your life have shaped your identity, and what do you cherish the most? You can also think about any challenges you've faced and how you've grown from them, as well as your long-term goals and aspirations. Once you've identified a few key elements that make up your personal story, try to find a common thread that ties them together. That thread could be your theme! Remember, it doesn't have to be something grand or unique; it just needs to be authentic and reflective of who you are. Good luck with your college application journey!
