College applications: on essays

Register for the school website of one of the colleges you are applying to. After beginning the application process, look for the essay prompt required for your school. Post that prompt on here. This will be the essay you are writing for my class! So pick a good one.

If you do not post a prompt by Thursday, you will be assigned a generic college essay prompt that may not actually be useful for you as you apply to your school of choice.

DUE THURSDAY 9/6
