As it has been stated, do your research. Don't say anything that you can't back up with facts or don't believe.
One last thing to keep in mind is that you can send in a rewritten draft of the essay if you aren't pleased with the initial version. I applied EA last year and got deferred. I'm guessing that this had at least something to do with the fact that my first version of the essay was very basic and cliche.
I emailed my admission rep and asked to resubmit the newer version and they were happy to comply. And just to give you a basis for length, my final version was around words.

He doesn't have outstanding stats. Trying to figure out what the hook was. No, I think it is because his stats put him so squarely in the Tulane "sweet spot" TxDad For the most part, the Why Tulane essay seems to be to identify those with Ivy level stats that are using Tulane for a safety. I am sure there are other things they like to see in it, but I have zero doubt that was its main purpose when they added it to the application years ago.
Those students often ignored the essay under the assumption their stats would be enough to get in, no problem. You should have seen the outrage on here when they got deferred in most cases. Clearly Tulane was not a safety for him, but a great fit academically if not even a bit of a challenge, and I can only imagine they saw other factors that make them think Tulane is a very real choice for him. I would bet the rest of his resume had enough to indicate a good fit. That would certainly indicate interest.
