What Should I Write My Essay About?
Answered

Hey, so I am currently struggling to start my essay, and I have no idea how to start it or what to write about.I want to study law, if that changes anything. I have a few ideas, but I don't think they are all that great. my ideas include:

- The first time I went rowing with my team

- When my boat won 3rd place in my first competition/rigotta

- How I love when my dad teaches me math

- When I saw my family's foreign exchange student for the first time in the airport and what it was like having an older sister

- How I love seeing the stars at my grandparents' house and it makes me want to try to learn everything, and it makes me rethink my exsistance.

Please help I don't know what to do, and my deadline in December 1st!!

Thank you so much

~ Lucy

The biggest deciding factor is what you want the admissions officers to know about you.
