Subject: College Admissions
When applying to colleges, a common essay theme many universities use is "overcoming an obstacle". What is a good way to answer this question?
There are 2 common mistakes when answering this sort of prompt. Some students make the mistake of sounding arrogant by not picking a sincere enough hardship, or rambling on about their great qualities, without writing enough about their experience with hardship. Other students make the mistake of not highlighting their positive traits enough, and speaking only of how difficult their time of hardship was, which can be interpreted as complaining. The best way to answer this prompt is to strike the right balance between discussing a time of hardship, and highlighting the qualities that helped you overcome it. Another tip when answering this sort of prompt is talk not only about how you overcame a hardship, but what you learned from your experience with it. Talking about how your experience helped you become a better person will be looked highly upon by admissions officers. Furthermore it lets the reader know that you understand you are not perfect and while you do have great qualities, you also are constantly learning and progressing as a human.
