How do I make my writing more vibrant and fun/easy to read?
The best way to make writing more vibrant is to alternate between sentence structures. This could mean changing where the verbs and nouns are in a sentence, using varying sentence lengths, and using different coordinating conjunctions for different thoughts. Using varying action words and utilizing different adjectives can also add much more energy to your writing.

Where do I put the decimal when a number is depicted as thousandths, hundredths, and tenths?
Say we are told to write out the numeric version of 15 tenths. The "tenth" means divide the original number essentially by 10. 15 divided by 10 is 1.5. A trick to remember where the decimal goes, is to simply move it to the left by 1. So, 15.0 turns into 1.5. For hundredths, you are essentially dividing the original number by 100, or, you can move the decimal to the left 2 times. So when writing 15 hundredth; 15.0 turns into 0.15. For thousandths, you are dividing the original number by 1000, or moving the decimal to the left three times. So when writing 15 thousandths; 15.0 turns into 0.015.

What should I write about for my college essay/personal statement?
Write about either an aspect of your life that identifies you, a time you showed leadership/courage, or an experience that changed your life/changed the way you think. All of these topics will provide you with a way to demonstrate parts of yourself that will not only set you apart from other candidates, but will also show the university that you will be a great asset to their campus, and the world, if given the opportunity to attend their institution.
