How can I write a good and impressive essay?

Recommended Posts

Being as concise as possible. The kid who uses a thesaurus for every word is a professor's nightmare. Good writing is about good ideas written clearly and to the point.

In terms of vocabulary, you will pick up on words that particular fields like to use by reading more of the literature. I'm not just talking about jargon; I've definitely seen particular phrases and words that seem favored by a field. For example, the fields of psychology and organizational behavior talk about "organizations" while economics and strategy talk about "firms" when discussing businesses (simple example but the more you read, the more you will pick up on such preferences).

I agree that using a thesaurus is not always helpful, nor is using the biggest and most complicated words. You run the risk of confusing your audience if they're unfamiliar with the word or if you use it incorrectly in a sentence. Being clear and concise is more important.

Furthermore, it is the content of your writing that will impress your faculty - the strength of your arguments, the level of research you did on a topic, and the unique insights you bring to the discussion. No list of "impressive words" can independently accomplish this.

I don't think Professors are looking for every word to be something that you dug up out of the thesaurus when reading your essays . In fact, I imagine that would get tedious very quickly and may even lead to a poor grade overall. Instead, focus on getting your points across succinctly while still trying to make it interesting to read.
