Not all applications are the same, and some need specific tailoring. Also, make sure that you are not saying in two words what you could say in one word.

Essays are one of the best ways to look like a solid applicant for the simple fact that you can take just about as long as you want on them, and they are a window into the essence of you. If you boast a strong essay, but other parts of your application are lacking, you might just be able to squeak by the gatekeeper.
