    Hi,

    I have to start writing my admission essay soon as I plan to apply to a few top schools. But am not too sure what it must entail, what I must focus on, and what I should avoid. Any help will be appreciated? Can anyone tell me the common mistakes made in application letters?

    Which universities are you applying to? The requirements for UK universities are very different to applications to other countries.

    I am applying to schools in the US, not the UK. My first two choices are University of San Francisco and the SF State University, as I stay in SF.
