If you mean transcripts the make sure they are well balanced and that they show you have challenged yourself. Do not over reach. Better to have an A in Biology than a C in Biology honors. Get a job, doesn't have to be a lot of hours but should show commitment. Have some kind of athletic interest whether it be a team sport or an individual activity like Karate, again show that you have done it over years not months. Embrace your hobby and grow with it. If you like photography then take photography classes and enter contests.

Most of all enjoy the journey, there is a school for everyone.

Out of all the school I have ever applied they have never asked for a college resume. They are only interested in seeing your transcripts. I would not worry about doing a college resume.

I have found that each college or sub school within a college have different instructions.

They typically ask a question, such as "How will you add value to this academic community." I believe these are purposefully vague so that you have freedom to choose an experience that really stuck with you and show the admissions council who you really are. You should strive to be personable. Lead with an interesting story on what has shaped you into the person you are today.

You then would want to relate how your past experiences will help you be successful as well as be a productive and contributing member to that community.

The basics:

Intro: attention grabber that will lead into the body of the essay

Supporting paragraphs for the question asked

Conclusion that should quickly summarize the highlights, include a call to action, and a strong statement of why you feel you have what it takes!

Hope this helps! I would be happy to take a look at some drafts and make some suggestions as well. Please feel free to contact me.
