Write the introduction and thes is statement

Before indulging in an essay like this one must have a thesis statement. This is the one sentence that introduces the central idea of the paper. This statement should sum up the basic meaning of the essay, and signal to the reader what to expect!

The first sentence is the most important one because it gets the reader’s attention. A strong opening paragraph of five sententences or less is needed, briefly explaining who you are, where you’re from, why the particular field to which you’re applying, and why this particular university is the first of your choices.

The first paragraph is very important. It’s the introduction and should hook the reader from the star, after all you do want the reader to continue reading!

The body of the paper – Each paragraph should deal with a single central idea. This should be introduced early in a topic sentence, telling the reader what exactly to expect in the paragraph.

Several ideas in a single paragraph will only confuse the reader. If the central ideas have several supporting points, break it into several paragraphs rather than having one very long paragraph.

Support your ideas, don’t just spit them out without backing – By giving support to your ideas you convince the readers of their truth and accuracy. If you successfully prove your statements, the reader should agree with your conclusions.

Structure the sequence of ideas carefully and logically – Remember you are mapping a course, leading the reader through the points that support your thesis. You don’t want to confuse them, or make them take the long way around. Transition smoothly from paragraph to paragraph to link them together logically. Use connecting sentences to keep the paper flowing smoothly.

And here you are ready to be called in anytime, just follow the steps, and see what wonders happen!
