Set-up: Next year — as an 11th grader — you will begin to think about the process of applying to colleges and universities around the United States (or beyond).
Part of the application process requires writing essays to help the university learn something intriguing about you. Not only do they want to learn facts (grades, SATs, etc.), they also want your creativity and attitude.
Often colleges want to know about your strengths and weaknesses. More importantly, they want to see how you explain them.
Challenge: For this entry, you are being asked to pick one ‘weakness’ of yours you’d like to get rid of…but there is a trick. You have to pick one ‘strength’ (that is equal to your ‘weakness’) that you will also have to get rid of.
- Identify the ‘weakness’ and why you want to get rid of it.
- Identify the ‘strength’ and why you want to get rid of it.
- Explain what you think your life would be like without both of these
