Conducting background research from related sites This entails a visit to the Web site of your chosen school and other relevant Web sites from which you might glean information. The main purpose of conducting research is to ensure your essay will meet ALL the requirements of your chosen school in terms of word count and content, and that you will be able to zero in on the qualities they are looking for in an applicant and include these in your essay.Identifying a basic idea or theme
Often, the first draft is not the essay you originally envisioned. You might even discover that your ideas about your theme have changed as you have been writing. If you do not like the way certain sections are stated, re_arrange them. Once you are pleased with the body, make sure the conclusion and introduction still match it and complement the way you see your topic at this point. If not, rewrite them to fit the essay you did write and the way you see your topic now.
