At top U.S. colleges, where the competition for admission is fierce, a candidate's application essays can help him (or her) to stand out in an increasingly talented applicant pool. 101 College Admissions Essays That Made a Difference (ISBN 9781933819440) presents 101 successful essays that enabled their authors to gain admission to the Ivy League programs of their choice.

By design, they include more than 20 different topics, including the candidates' goals, family, role models, defining experiences, notable accomplishments, contribution to diversity, international travel experiences, awards, and artistic and musical passions. The selection also includes successful responses to being waitlisted and separate addendums to explain a disappointing GPA or SAT score.

Collectively, these essays show the many ways that candidates have presented themselves to the committee in a creative (and effective) manner. They also show the caliber of writing that is expected at top schools. Before you put pen to paper to write your own essays, take the time to read successful essays from students who have already accomplished what you are trying to do.

See what writing styles, themes and personal revelations impressed the committee and won admission for their authors to the most prestigious schools in the world. Use them to gain insight into your own life experiences and to write your own compelling essays. For something this important, why leave your essay to chance?
