Don’t write your essay about Coronavirus

This post isn’t so much about ACT Prep as it is about college applications.

I’m going to make my advice simple: do not write your application essay about Coronavirus if you want to stand out. Everyone will be writing about how they coped with school closures and anxiety.

Now, if you are doing something amazing for others related to Coronavirus, like this teen has, then write all about it.
