Don’t use redundant language.

Redundant language is one particular way of writing badly that wastes your writing space and annoys the committee at the same time. There are a lot of commonly used redundant phrases, but some of the most common are “actively involved” (if you’re not active, you’re not involved) “past history” (all history is in the past) and “all I can possibly do” (you can’t do anything impossibly). Eliminate these phrases from your writing as best you can, because each instance of such phrases chips away at the professionalism of your essay.
