E. Writing the draft _ Now that you have identified a theme, prepared an outline, and created a list of all the information you need, you can integrate them into an essay. This is the time to thresh out the ideas you have listed and combine them into manageable paragraphs that can be revised and re_revised later on. When writing your draft, a very important thing to consider is to write first and edit later. Do not worry about word count limit at this point, as you might prematurely edit your essay and unwittingly remove interesting or important information.

This is your chance to shine which means including details not included on the resume such as a description of 'soft' skills like analytical thinking and interpersonal skills.
