When writing college essays , does it matter if I use "I'm" instead of "I am"?
That is, is abbreviation appropriate in application essays?
Thank you!

The use of contractions is largely inappropriate in formal academic writing. Many instructors will count off for their use, as it is seen as too informal and disrespectful. Therefore, avoid them in your formal academic writings.
