Writing an essay is no easy job, especially if you plan to impress the college admission committee with a memorable, inspiring, original and overall exceptional piece of writing. When I first applied for undergraduate study in the US for the 2006 Fall semester, I tried to depict as vividly as I could some of the most important events of my life, struggling to embed an image of my personality in a 600 words essay. My failure to get accepted to the college I had chosen made me realize that my essays weren’t quite tailored to the right shape of thought. The next year I decided to give it another try, this time asking for some professional help. This is where Mrs Maracine came in. They helped me give the admission essays the clarity and concision they were missing. Consequence of their counseling, I transformed my essays from some diluted pieces of writing to meaningful and interesting accounts of my experiences. Without her advising, I probably wouldn’t have been now a new addition to the Colby College’s international student body. I have her to thank for showing me how to express successfully my ideas and give them the power to impress, which led to my early decision admission to Colby College.

Sa scrii un eseu nu e o treaba usoara in special daca intentionezi sa impresionezi comitetul de admisie cu un eseu memorabil, original si de exceptie. Cand am aplicat pentru prima data la universitati in Statele Unite pentru semestrul de toamna al anului 2006, am incercat sa prezint cat mai dinamic cele mai importante evenimente din viata mea, straduindu-ma sa prezint o imagine cat mai buna a personalitatii mele intr-un eseu de 600 de cuvinte. Faptul ca nu am fost acceptata la universitatile pe care le-am ales m-a facut sa imi dau seama ca eseurile mele nu erau gandite in cel mai logic mod posibil. Anul urmator m-am decis sa mai incerc o data, de data aceasta apeland la ajutor profesionist. Si aici intervine rolul doamnei Maracine. Dumneaei m-a ajutat sa dau eseurilor mele claritatea si concizia care le lipsea. Datorita ajutorului sau, am reusit sa transform eseurile mele din relatari diluate in marturii semnificative si interesante ale experientelor mele. Fara sfaturile sale, probabil ca acum nu as fi studenta la Colby. Dumneaei trebuie sa ii multumesc pentru ca mi-a aratat cum sa imi exprim ideile, cum sa le dau puterea sa impresioneze, ceea ce a dus la admiterea mea early la Colby College .

Pentru cei interesati de Colby College sau de un liberal arts education in general, aceasta este adresa mea e e-mail. Sunt deschisa oricaror intrebari si sunt gata sa ofer o parere sau un sfat.
