I used regular college ruled notebook paper. I was going to use a piece of clean white paper, without lines, but my wrting would nenver come out straight on it.
What are you writing about? I wrote about a "self-educating endeavor": how I learned to play jazz on my sax. I figure it would be something different from all the "I want to be doctor because...." essays they probably will get and be tired of reading.
for the handwritten ECU essay, i used regular computer printer paper, and wrote on top of a notepad so i could follow the lines. i plan on doing the same thing for the VCU essay, provided I am ever allowed to access the secondary.
