I'm haven't done any essay writing in a long time (I was never good at writing to begin with actually) and I want to start writing again to prepare for graduate school. I went to the GRE website and download their Issue Topics and Argue Topics to start. I was wondering if anyone could read my essay to see if I it is on the right track? Please don't worry about my grammer since I didn't proof read my essay yet.
Please feel free to criticise how bad it is. Well, here is my essay..

I'm not sure what you want to know. You said you have not proof-read your work. There are grammatical errors and misspellings. Some of your sentences are worded in a confusing way.

I suggest that you go back and look at each paragraph and each line.

Does it have a main idea? Are there supporting sentences in the paragraph? Is there a conclusion statement at the end?

Do the paragraphs flow together in a logical order?

Does the last paragraph state your position and make a final statement?

(Learning to outline helps in writing essays.)
