College Application Essays

The day I punched that rascal in the stomach, I returned home and burst into tears at the sight of my mother. The bullies had been taunting my brother after finding his diaper in his schoolbag. My mother, tearing up herself, gave me a firm hug and told me that she was proud of me for standing up for my little brother. This was my mother, the emotional stronghold of my family as we endured my brother's illness together. And...









Supplemental Essay: Issue of personal significance
294 Words
[MIT] Describe the world you come from; for example, your family, clubs, school, community, city, or town. How has that world shaped your dreams and aspirations?

Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
259 Words
[Stanford] What matters to you, and why? Inhabiting the 10-foot-wide wall of my room is the Bookwall, my secret portal to the universe. This macrocosm is home to everything from Antigone to Zeitoun, from Hemingway to Dickens, from the Maze Runner to Crime and Punishment. Each tells a story: a provocative story, an uplifting story, sometimes even a nonsensical story, but a story nonetheless. Stories matter to me; they provide a brief respite from my own confined world, a vicarious...
