College Application Essays

Personal Statement: Failure experience
641 Words
Eight months down with zero left to go. A single assignment that was like the concept of a national bank to President Jackson, an eight-headed hydra; I’m not sure why Jackson had the hydra with eight heads, but for me I assume that there was one head for each month of work. Eight months in and the time to be ready and succeed has come. A knock is never heard. Success is never present. The only thing lurking in...









Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
732 Words
What is the Good Life (UF Essay- CO 2019) Coco Chanel said “There are people who have money and people who are rich.” The good life is not quantified in dollars and cents. Richness is not derived from a six figure paycheck. Some people believe that if they have the most lavish things, than they must live the good life. Some may say that, but I am not part of that group. To me, the good life is one that is...

Which do you find most important leading, learning, service, and global awareness? (FSU Essay- CO 2019) Garnet and Gold: the colors of leading, learning, service, and global awareness. These traits are all a part of me, but the one which stands out the most amongst that glittering gold and glorious garnet is service. Entrusted into the Florida State University seal is Vires, Artes, Mores- Strength, Skill, and Character. It takes strength to stand up for what you believe in, skill to...







Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
521 Words
If you could create a course, what would it be? (Emory- CO 2019) Too often we judge the world around us, too often stigmas are created around a group of people, and much too often, we enable self-deprecation. Throughout school we are taught key dates in history, central scientific discoveries, and building blocks of mathematical formulas. We are taught to assess values and numbers, but never are we taught to assess our own self-worth. A true understanding of collaboration, creativity, entrepreneurship,...

If you were to write a 300 page biography, what page would you want to be read? (Old Common App Essay) My acceptance to UPenn would be an unfathomable phenomenon. I would be eternally grateful to attend this prestigious university. This 300 page autobiography doesn’t bother me at all. In fact I think it is easy, just a testament to how hard I would work. Being that this is an autobiography I should be talking about myself. The point of this...







Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
850 Words
Write about a personal experience that changed you (Old Common App Essay) Inferior, unworthy, subpar, simply not enough. For seventeen years I have looked in the mirror and this is what my reflection has painfully reminded me of every day. I’m not pretty, I’m not enough, I’m only me and what is so great about that. For seventeen years this is what I thought of myself. Until one day. The day seemed like it would be ordinary,...

Write a Short Essay (Old Common App Essay) Pick up the arrow, align it to the bow, draw your arm back, focus on your target, and release. I engage in the activity of archery. Much too often in life, we lose sight of our target and miss our bulls eye. We doubt our strength, our ability to find our courage, and let our goals soar. We are afraid to miss. In archery we learn to practice, to find confidence, to...

252 Words
Write about an important activity in your life (Old Common App Essay) Four letters compose the word that has molded me into the person I am today. DECA. By definition DECA is no longer an acronym, but to me it will always stand for Dreams, Experiences, Creations, Aspirations. DECA has taught me invaluable lessons that an average 17 year old should not have yet learned, and has given me useful abilities. DECA has transformed me from an average high school student...

Explain if you feel your academic record is a good reflection (Old Common App Essay) It does not match. It is not me. It is but a number. 1890, just a number. I am 17. I have a brain, a heart, a goal. I want to go to college and pursue my dreams, but this task is not an easy one. I am represented by numbers. 8 ½ by 11 ½ that is how much space there is to represent me. 1920 or 29 those are the numbers...

Share where your safe place is (Old Common App Essay) Volatile. The world is simply volatile. Serenity continues to implode as the world continues to spiral out of control, even though it continues to remain positioned upon it’s normal axis. The axis allows the world to lay on a slant, so partial volatility is to be expected, but I know a place where the world lies still. The axis realigns so everything lies perfectly straight. The volatility ceases, and...

How to increase chances at my school
182 Words
There is a lot of controversy as to whether the UF admissions process makes sense. My opinion, and I am not saying I'm right, I'm just saying my opinion, is that there is a loose formula. At my high school if you are within a certain percent of the class (I believe it's 10), have received...

My college extracurricular activities are my sorority, fraternity, mentor club, occasionally volunteering at the Humane Society and now a leadership program.

He said you should have at least...
