Beyond Test Scores, Beyond Grades: Why College Essays Are Essential

Why are essays so important?

Why are people with great grades and near-perfect test scores denied admission to the top universities in the US?

Why do a few colleges demand that students write several, difficult supplemental questions, while most others require none?

These questions and more are addressed in this excellent article written by Robert Sternberg and published the other day in The Washington Post.

Definitely worth a read.
