I have a vivid memory of the first time my six-year-old cousin told me he loved me. For most, this would not be a significant event. After all, family members are generally obligated to love one another. But for (name), expressing his love was difficult, at least in the conventional way, so the first time he came up to me and pressed his mouth to the palm of my hand and held it there was a memory that will always...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
107 Words
Tufts is a place where the two pillars of nerdiness—passion and intellectualism—collide.

Having grown up in a small, suburban southern town, I long for diversity and a completely opposite atmosphere in college. A vibrant city like Boston can provide me with those things. But Boston University is more than just another college in Boston. It stands out to me as a globally minded school with a big picture approach that can offer me exactly what I’m looking for in a college. At BU, I can sit around a table with twenty...
