Word Choice - Verb Power

This week, I had the opportunity to read some college essays for a colleague. College essay writing is an area that I am not fluent in, but I was willing to look over the essays and see if I had any suggestions for revision.
I was reminded about the importance of choosing the right word for the sentence in order to convey the intended tone and message. Published authors talk about the importance of word choice, but it was a good reminder that verb selection is crucial in conveying a direct and correct message.
