    I have to have a rough draft of my common app essay for my English class tomorrow, and I don't know which topic to pick.

    I know this is supposed to be my ideas, and it will be, but does anyone have some tips to writing this essay?

    It can be about absolutely anything, if i remember correctly. It's the open ended 500 word one right? I wrote mine about a particular way of looking at life and how it was best for me and my future in the academic and real world.

    Other ideas include hobbies or enlightening experiences. It doesn't have to necessarily say anything about going to college, just something about you.

    Well one of the options is to do a topic of your choice, and some of the other ones are things like how a historical figure influences you, or discussing an issue of personal, national, etc. concern to you.

    Yeah I chose the topic of my choice and wrote about whatever i wanted. If it happened to fit into another prompt, then that'd be ok too.
