With excited eyes, she flips through them one by one, taking in every detail of every picture, babbling to herself...

Short Essay In the space available discuss the significance to you of the school or summer activity in which you have been most involved. In the summer of 2010, I went to Spain with a five-week program held by Woodberry Forrest School. Because my mom was a teacher at this all-boys boarding school, I was able to attend. The program included stays in Barcelona, Sevilla, Valencia, and Madrid, as well as day trips to other Spanish towns. In Sevilla and Valencia,...

What can make you feel small? Two years ago, my family and I took a two week tour of Turkey. We travelled everywhere from Istanbul to Antalya and even Troy, which would seem the logical choice for an epiphany, but turned out not to be.

Supplemental Essay Q: What sets your heart on fire? What sets my heart on fire is not a certain sport or subject, nor is it a certain person or action.

Supernatural is a show on the CW Network about two brothers on...
