Topic A ApplyTexas Answered
Hello guys, I am currently writing my essay, but I have questions about the prompt. The prompt says throughout my high school career so do I talk about school? I have heard talking about academics is bad for essays so I’m not sure what to write about.

Personally, I think you could talk about academics as long as you discuss why it matters to you, but I think they are going for more of difficulties/opportunities outside of school. For example, if you had a really cool volunteer experience or a health condition that made normal activities hard, those are some things you could write about. I think mostly college admission people just want to see you be able to talk about how your experiences affect you and your viewpoint on life.
