College Application Essays

Picture Perfect She’s a year and a few months old and has her whole life ahead of her, but she doesn’t quite know that, not really. All she knows is one second she was asleep and the next she is very much awake. Just like always, there is a pile of books near the corner of her crib. With excited eyes, she flips through them one by one, taking in every detail of every picture, babbling to herself...

We understand that the college application process often feels stressful, when instead it should be an opportunity for self-reflection. Stop worrying for a minute and have fun with this response. Much of the work that students do at Emerson College is a form of storytelling. If you were to write the story of your life until now, what would you title it and why? Please be brief (100-200 words). If I were to title my life up to now it...

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. There are few things; very few that can make a person feel insignificant in relation to the world in today’s society. Because we essentially have everything in front of us, nothing feels out of...

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. I will be the first to say that I’m a strange person. When I love something I latch onto it and, to put it bluntly, obsess. This is what I have done with the TV show Supernatural. Supernatural is a show on the CW Network about two brothers on...

• College of Arts and Sciences: What work of art, music, science, mathematics, or literature has surprised, unsettled, or challenged you, and in what way? Painted during Goya’s Dark Period, the subject matter and dark color scheme of the painting Saturn reflect a rather disturbing and morbid tone that seems to both chill and fascinate the observer. I saw this painting in person when I went to El Museo Del Prado in Spain in 2010. Of all of the paintings I...
