Hello everyone.

Does anyone know if you need a title for a college application essay? If not, would you recommend one? Thanks

not necessarily. i'm sure there has been a similar thread about this a while back.

you don't have to have one but then theres nothing wrong with not having one.

the title isn't going to be determining a large, if not any portion of your essay
so if you can't think of anything, then you don't need one.

i only had one for my common apps essay

It is always recommended to title you work. I will give a professional feel to the piece. Always, it can give the reader an idea of the content of your essay. By titling your work (in an interesting or mysterious way) you might entrique the reader to read your essay with more spontaneous-ness, and enthusiasm...

I did not write any titles. Sometimes the essay promps are very broad, it is quite hard to condence the content to a title, and if an attractive title does not fit the essay, you may bring yourself trouble.

To Jenn:

The title of your essay depends on its content. People cannot help you recommend anything unless you provide us with some details. Anyway, title is optional (recommended somehow).

Good luck! (:

Thanks everyone!! I'm still not sure if i should create a title though, since there are various answers...

If anyone wants to recommend anything, my essay is in the thread Common App. Essay- Option #1: significant experience and its impact The revised version is at the bottom!
Thanks again!

It is not necessary, but you can have one as you like.

Titles are Great!!

I believe you should always give a title! The title is so important because it's the first thought you convey to the reader.

is it bad if i didn't put a title to any of my essays but instead had the prompt as a heading and uploaded the word document as is?
