Supplemental Essay Using a metaphor
616 Words
X is not only the letter before Y in the English alphabet. X does not merely begin very few English words. X is not merely the quantity Y minus B divided by M. X is truth, and X is meaning. X is what I stand for, what I believe in. X is destiny, and X is purpose. X is what I am and what I aspire to become. How do I go about exploring and discovering X? I study hard...

The quarter system is highly overrated. Schools (such as Northwestern) will laud its “versatility” in allowing students to take an impressive variety of classes. However, its cons far outweigh its pros (well, pro). Schools on the quarter system typically begin and end classes far later than those on the semester system. This leads to two things: sitting around with no one to hang out with for several weeks before classes start, and being several weeks late to the internship/job...
