If there is one thing I absolutely hate, its writing scholarship essays. They all basically ask you to tell them why you are so great and wonderful and why you should get their money. I find this kind of topic the most challenging to write about because there is a fine line between telling someone your a quality student and telling someone your a conceited jerk. In fear of sounding like the latter, I usually end up telling some lame story about the last couple years of my life and I think not focusing enough on how "awesome" I am. I've seen just about all the scholarship writing websites there is and they all just state the obvious. Does anyone have an advice or examples they could post of some of their scholarship essays? Perhaps and adjectives or euphemisms they like to use for these things that are strong, but not too strong?
