Update: Reliance Stanford Scholarship essay

Phew! Just finished the 8th iteration, and hopefully the final, of Reliance Stanford Scholarship essay.  It seems to be in a pretty decent shape now, and its the time to get it reviewed by the people I feel would give justice by reading it sincerely and providing their honest comments.

Two points I feel are worth mentioning here:

1. An essay partner could do wonders to your essay. I'm lucky to have such a friend who is also applying for this fellowship. She really understood my ideas and contributed to my essay as her own. This has really helped me bringing in clarity in my ideas with every discussion, thereby shaping my essay tremendously.

2.  As I said, essay must be review by a few trusted people who know well about you and about the topic of the essay. But don’t send your rough drafts to anyone for reviewing. More than often, they might not be able to get the actual idea you want to convey and their interest might start wandering in subsequent reviews. So, get them reviewed once essay reaches a stable state.

So as I wait for the comments from my reviewers, I'll start building my Resume.
 
Cheers,
A

  4. Hey,
    My essay is under review too.
    The problem I am facing is too many different comments...
    How are you handling that?

    Also, what are your thoughts on simplicity against big words for impact as its just 250 words here...

  5. Hi Anagha, I would say we need to smart choose the comments which improvise the essay in best ways. Some comments might demand to change the basic idea of my essay. I think I’m not going to change the idea of my essay at this point in time, so might have to drop those comments. But I would definitely welcome those comments which are in line with my idea and strengthen it further, and prioritise which one to include in my essay.

    Secondly, big words not necessarily bring big impact. 250 is no doubt a very limited space for this essay, but to reduce the words I’m restructuring the sentences a lot, without loosing their impact. Also, removing modifiers words like several, many etc. For instance, ‘I contacted various Xs for those Ys’. So, I reduced it to ‘I contacted Xs for Ys’.

    Hope that help!

    All the best,
    A

  24. I agree with you that you should only let someone who understands you and your reason for writing an application essay to review it. You have done a good thing to share your thoughts about essay reviewing with us. It is also nice thing that you have a friend who assisted you in writing the application essay.
