Question:

What are some things to watch out for when self-editing and proofreading essays after writing a first draft?

Answer:

- Make sure each paragraph begins with a topic sentence, ends with a concluding sentence, and provides evidence and analysis to support or counteract your claim. - Use spelling and grammar check to catch typos and basic grammar errors. - Read your paper out loud to yourself or a friend to ensure that your writing makes sense and flows stylistically. This is also a useful way to check for more advanced grammar errors that your computer's grammar check might miss, such as use of the passive voice.

Subject: US Government and Politics

Question:

Participation in presidential and midterm elections among the U.S. Voting Age Population tends to be significantly lower than voting rates for major elections in other industrialized democracies. Why might this be the case?

Answer:

Several factors contribute to the U.S. having lower voter turnout in major elections than other industrialized democracies: - Many states have restrictive voting laws, including voter ID laws and voter registration requirements, such as the lack of being able to register to vote on Election Day itself. This depresses turnout. - The Constitution does not explicitly guarantee the right to vote. Thus, voting has been conceptualized as a privilege throughout much of American history. Because the Constitution doesn't guarantee this right, almost all modern voting practices are regulated on a state-by-state basis. This leads to increased turnout in some states where it is easier to vote (i.e. Minnesota), and depressed turnout in others (most notably, Southern states). - A lack of widespread civic knowledge (i.e. knowing who your U.S. Senators and Representatives are) and the fact that many major elections feature a myriad of state and local elections present high information costs for voters who are less likely to be informed about non-presidential races. This further discourages voter turnout.

Answer:

Plan essays out in advance by brainstorming and outlining potential topics. Write multiple drafts, and share with friends, relatives, teachers, or tutors for editing and feedback. College admissions officers use essays to get to you better as a potential student at their school. Be genuine and authentic to tell a story that answers the prompt using your writing style and voice, but don't worry too much about crafting the "perfect" essay right away! As long as you plan out your essay well in advance, craft it to tell a compelling story in your voice, and leave plenty of time for edits and revisions, your essay will develop into a strong part of your college application.
