The outline is the skeleton or abstract of your essay. The outline is normally written in a form of short bullet points and its purpose is:
- To create a logical flow of content.
- To make sure you don’t miss crucial information/points in your essay.
The outline interview is conducted by the ARINGO consultant, and its purpose is to create content for the outline. The interview usually begins by determining the relevant content for the essay. This is done by using the original “Admissions Drivers” system, which was developed by our team and is constantly being updated based on our research.
The subject of the essay (for example ‘describe your greatest achievement’) is the focus of the interview. During the interview, your consultant will interview you about the essay topic and take notes of your responses in a form of an outline for the essay.
The consultant takes into account the topics most likely to be emphasized by each admission committee, based on the ARINGO research.
The purpose of the outline is on one hand, to be the basis of an authentic essay, and on the other hand to have an optimal effect on the admission committee. Therefore, to maintain authenticity, the outline will only be structured from the actual words you used.
If your time or budget is limited, or if you possess reasonable writing skills, please consider optional tips for streamlining the outline writing process.
