Personal Statement

Issue of personal significance
Superfluous school zones--where speeds go down and fines go up. One Monday morning. I approached the intersection of Royal and Arborside, pressing on the brakes, irritated that I had to slow down. School zones and running late don't mix well. It would, of course, have been worth it if I had seen some little schoolgirls and boys parade into school with their Hello Kitty and Spiderman backpacks, their lives perhaps saved by my twenty mile per hour speed. However, in...

Supplemental Essay Unique question posed by school
584 Words
Whether studying the periodic table of the elements, understanding the effects of the Stuart monarchs, or learning how to take a derivative, oftentimes school-work seems irrelevant to my day-to-day life or future career. Even Spanish class, which could someday allow me to communicate with hundreds of millions of people, seems ineffective when we are asked to read poetry in Spanish or learning how to order food at a German restaurant theoretically located in Madrid. Luckily, I had the opportunity to...

My advice about getting recommenders

Whether I took out loans or applied for scholarships, and my advice
146 Words
Google is pretty much your best friend for finding scholarships-just Google scholarships in your area and through your school. Make sure to fill out FAFSA, but scholarships outside of that are also great. I would advise looking for scholarships that are less well-known...

Whether I used a private admissions counselor, and advice I received
214 Words
I used an admissions counselor from my school. (Does that count as a private counselor?) She advised me to aim a little higher, as I was mostly looking at state schools and I could have gotten in to much more competitive schools. Her advise was well-meaning, but I didn't really take it. I knew that I wouldn't really be able to afford anything...

How to increase chances at my school
255 Words
Texas A&M does automatic admit for the top 10% at each school in the state, so that is the very best way to ensure that you will be admitted. Outside of that, Texas A&M will automatically admit you if you meet the academic admit requirements (that's how I got in). Here are the details about academic admit: Applicants qualify for automatic academic admission (but not necessarily to the major of choice), if...
