Here's what you need to know: you'll be asked to read a text (typically a speech or editorial of some sort) and discuss how the author effectively builds an argument.
This might be a familiar task if you’ve done it in school, but if not, don’t worry.
Please address one of the following topics or submit an essay on a topic of your choice.
The essay is limited to 3800 characters including spaces. (Fee information for the School of Health Professions is here.) Rutgers must receive the fee or a fee waiver before your application will be considered complete and ready for review.
So be sure to maintain formal style and an objective tone. Your conclusion should restate the goal of the passage/argument and sum up the points you made. When describing how the author builds his or her argument, “appeal to the emotions” is fine instead of specifically referencing “pathos.” And “comparison of two things” can be used instead of referring to a metaphor.
If you do know the official terms, though, feel free to use them!
The format is straightforward, and with some practice, you can learn how to write a great SAT essay.
