How to write a College Application Essay?

My teacher assigned my class to write an essay to a college and I don't know where to start. So how do you keep 3 paragraphs under 500 words showing, not telling, a certain quality.I want to be a vet tech, and I was going to show empathy for animals. I was thinking for my first paragraph I'd write about the death of one of my dogs. Second, I was thinking about using the situation where I was 4 and sat on and killed a rat. And lastly, I was thinking about using the dog I have right now, and how I care about him so much. Do those show empathy?

    Do you want to go to college or hug animals all day?! The purpose of the college application essay is to make the school feel that: 1) you will be able to do the work, 2) you will be a positive addition to their student body, and 3) there is something special about you that they want.You want to include for #1 that you are above average academically (good grades, etc.)For #2, you will take your education seriously and set a good example, and for #3, that you love animals and you already know that you want to gain the knowledge and skills that will allow you to help keep them healthy and safe.
