College Entrance

My girlfriend's brother was asked to submit an essay about overcoming adversity for one of his college entrance applications, and he sent it to me for feedback. It was a fine story about how his struggle after failing Spanish class had been a humbling experience that required summer school, studying and perseverance. In the essay he talks about studying over the summer and returning to pass his class. I helped him out with a bit of subject/verb agreement and a little punctuation. What I really wanted to point out is that writing about failing one of your classes might not show the admissions board that you posses the most sound judgment.
