So I have these finished essays in front of me and I'm killing myself over which one i should send off to my congressmen and rep. The choice pretty much comes down to this, should the essay I send be descriptive of myself and be "creative" while still answereing the prompt? Or should the essay I send in be a just the facts kind of deal explaining why i want to go? The reason being my father (career army) told me they don't want to see creativity they just want the bare facts. Is he right/wrong? What are they looking for in the essays if so?
