They want essays: 1200 words maximum
With your well-crafted words, tell true stories of transformation and redemption. Reach down into those dark places, and tell how you emerged into the light. Inspire.
They like essays that lean toward some growth or insight—at least by their conclusion. They want evidence of intense reflection, vivid imagery, authentic characters, and lyrical turns of phrase.
You’ll have them in the first paragraph or not at all.
They know the difference between essays that have been polished and perfected from that which still need care.
