Do you guys think it's necessary to put a title on my college essay?

I'm about to submit my college essay and I'm curious if adding a title would make a difference. Do you think it's important or just optional? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you're almost done with your college essay. As for including a title, it's not a strict requirement, but it can help to make your essay stand out. A good title can grab the reader's attention and give them a hint of what your essay is about.

However, keep in mind that it's the content of your essay that really matters, so it's more important to focus on writing a strong essay that tells your story effectively. If you do decide to include a title, make sure it's concise and relevant to your essay's theme. Ultimately, it's up to you whether or not to include a title, depending on your personal preference and the overall presentation of your essay. Good luck with your submission!
