We had been editing an essay recently of a smart guy who is not smart alone but he was also brave enough to end up with his drug use past. But why why why why would an applicant want to talk about that in the admission essay? I agree, there is a honesty visible, and nobody would ever doubt on the college’s end that the person is open and wants everyone to learn about his or her past. But wiat a minute, i am afraid the person may just get rejected because of that!
There are dozens of other candidates that speak about ecology problems, economics recession and wall street problems. Drug use past is ok when you are already over it. It is not too ok for use in your admission paper though. We recommend you to concentrate on those subjects that will let the alma mater decision makers see your academic potential, your further adult profession and the value you are going to be bringing into the society when you graduate from the college or uni you apply to. Agree? Then take your drugs use experience off the shelf!
