You're better off not airing your dirty laundry out in public. While it's great to have faith in your abilities, no one likes a relentless show-off.No matter how magnificent your accomplishments, if you decide to focus your essay on them, it's better to describe a setback or a moment of doubt rather that simply praising yourself to the skies. In this case, you're trying to make yourself memorable to an admissions officer who has been reading thousands of other essays.Sometimes, even if the experiences you discuss could be the foundation of a great personal statement, the way you’ve structured and put together your essay sends up warning flags.

Generally speaking, leave past illegal or immoral actions out of your essay.

It's simply a bad idea to give admissions officers ammunition to dislike you.

Some exceptions might be if you did something in a very, very different mindset from the one you’re in now (in the midst of escaping from danger, under severe coercion, or when you were very young, for example).

Or if your essay is about explaining how you've turned over a new leaf and you have the transcript to back you up.

Another way to mess this up is to ignore prompt instructions either for creative or careless reasons.

This can show admissions officers that you're either someone who simply blows off directions and instructions or someone who can't understand how to follow them.

Badly chosen essay content can easily create an essay that is off-putting in one of a number of ways I’ll discuss in the next section.

The essay is the place to let the admissions office of your target college get to know your personality, character, and the talents and skills that aren’t on your transcript.

One way to get this part wrong is to exhibit very faulty writing mechanics, like unclear syntax or incorrectly used punctuation.

This is a problem since college-ready writing is one of the things that’s expected from a high school graduate.
