Personal Statement for UMich, Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia: Failure experience, Leadership experience, Reaching a goal
669 Words
My name was not there. Two words, seven letters, not there. Heart pounding, I slowly backed away from the Debate Team roster. Rejected, I thought hollowly, though I wasn’t completely surprised. During my tryout, I had been petrified at the podium, palms sweating and shaking. Maybe I’ll never debate. The thought crushed me; I pushed it aside.

In May, struggling students requested exam tutoring. Wanting to help, I ran between classes and sent out emails asking fellow NHS members, classmates, and friends...

217 Words
Prompt: Write about something that you love to do. Competitive public speaking has taught me how to connect better with others, both onstage and off. Wanting to become a more dynamic speaker, I entered the National Management Association leadership speech contest. I spoke about the extent that popularity affects leadership this year, telling my audience about how I used to be a quiet member of the Debate Team, and how I wanted to change. While I used to laugh nervously...
