College Application Essays

Personal Statement: Story central to identity
81 Words
Smothers Brothers, George Carlin, Jackie Mason, Bob Newhart, Foster Brooks… it is rare for anyone in my generation to know of these legendary comedians. I, however, have grown up with a vast knowledge of humorists, as my father has performed comedy for over thirty years at the Laugh Factory, the Comedy Store, the Improv, and even Off-Broadway. His passion for making people laugh has, over the years, significantly influenced me, and I now see it as my passion as well.



Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
33 Words
I rewrote the lyrics to Fresh Prince of Bel Air to tell a university about my involvement with church activities and leadership, and how I would fit into their community through these experiences.

Additional Essay Details:
36 Words
I didn't have to write about a sob story or a life changing experience to write about who I am. Find something that fits you - no matter how big or how small, it is YOU!
