Personal Statement: Athletic achievement

I always start practice with a jump. Every good dive starts with a jump, with a perfect take off from that turquoise colored piece of aluminum fastened exactly 1 or 3 meters above the surface of the water below. That jump defines the rest of practice. Either my feet catch the end of the board at its lowest point, and I am flung unnaturally high into the air, or I stomp the end of the board, flat-footed, and continue practice knowing that...

Supplemental Essay: Issue of personal significance
975 Words
I have always known that I am different from my sister. From a young age, I have tried to appease my parents, while my sister always picks battles with them. While I found a group of friends to enjoy most of my time at Bronxville with, she struggled to find people who would accept her for who she really was.

1. Recall an occasion when you took a risk that you now know was the right thing to do. Band class used to be a struggle for me. Every day Ms. Slote would find something to call me out on in front of the entire ensemble. She would constantly blame the chatty group on my voice, which would no doubt carry out over all the rest, but nonetheless was not alone. I remember telling her: “It’s not like I sit...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay

Northwestern University offers an extremely diverse group of schools and people attending those schools to create a learning experience unparalleled by any other institution. Most fascinating to my interests and me is the McCormick School of Engineering. At McCormick, the research-based education prepares students for any challenges ready to be tackled upon graduation, as well as focusing on “whole-brain engineering.” Engineering is much more than the ability to calculate difficult equations or produce an accurate number, but to think creatively...
