My winning scholarship essay, annotated

Hi there I uploaded a post to r/college more than a year ago titled "How I Won Over $100k in Scholarships By Someone Who Is not Getting Paid to Market to You, and it received over 250 upvotes.

After reading the piece today, someone asked to view one of my earlier essays. I went back and added a ton of annotations before emailing it, along with advice on how you could use these ideas in your own articles.

The annotations might pinpoint areas where the essay could be improved, such as transitions between ideas, clarity of arguments, or specific techniques employed.

It’s a great way to share your experience and make those old essays work double duty. By adding annotations and tips, you’re basically giving your past self a high five and helping others on their scholarship journey – win-win!
