What format did everyone who got into Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn, etc write your essays in?? I was thinking of starting on a narrow topic such as an occurrence in my life and broaden it up to show its significance and impact. Or I could do an extended metaphor and make it pertinent to my life in some way. Were your essays abstract or straightforward?? What type is more likely to stand out?

I started off with an event and then went to how it affected me.

My essay was a social commentary. I wrote about tyranny of the majority, and how it is not always in the "right." I also wrote about my circumstances growing up. For example my father is an alcoholic that beats me.

I started off with an anecdote, and then morphed it into what I want to do with the rest of my life and why.
