A dichotomy emerges that manifests itself in the schools of higher learning, e.g. schools of...









Supplemental Essay for NYU: “Why us” school essay
182 Words
In considering the many diverse schools at NYU, I chose the Gallatin School of Individualized Study as my primary choice because of the ability for students to take courses across the many different schools/programs of NYU. After Gallatin, I was interested in the Global Liberal Studies program which seems to align perfectly with my interest in an expansive humanities. NYU overall provides an abundance of resources and opportunities (both academic and professional) that is almost without parallel. The location...

With the understanding that the choice of academic school you indicated is not binding, explain why you are applying to that particular school of study. (150 word limit) The humanities provide us with a lens onto ourselves and others. I want to develop this lens and train them on my past, present and future.

Supplemental Essay for Rice: “Why us” school essay
267 Words
How did you first learn about Rice University and what motivated you to apply? (250 word limit) I think I first heard of Rice University...in middle school. I think elementary school was too much a time of suburban underwater microcosms. Middle school took me out of this world of pissed jeans, duck duck goose, Mrs. Sawyer's Journey blasting on the radio in 5th grade science, and into one of G.T. inculcation (we were the "smart ones"), portable philosophy and...

The quality of Rice's academic life and the Residential College System are heavily influenced by the unique life experiences and cultural traditions each student brings. What personal perspective would you contribute to life at Rice? (500 word limit) Well, I volunteered and biked around the Northeast and Canada over the Summer.

My advice about getting recommenders
309 Words
First, burn your skin in a bowl of Portuguese steel. The bowl can be furnished with pupil carvings, but only if engraved with a baby bird's beak. Second, call upon the gods of paradise and deposit the ashes in careful patterns across the boss man's internet catalogs. Then look at those rusty phalanges and look at the boss man's eyes and start carving away. This can take up to 20 hours so make sure to also carve out some time for this part of the process. You always want to plan ahead, so when the crushing hour approaches make sure to...

How to increase chances at my school (NYU)
273 Words
I think for a school like NYU with its multiple programs, schools and campuses, it's crucial to do a bit of research on the program of school you're applying to. Additionally, it's always good to do a little research on the other schools as well- especially since the university asks you for alternative programs for admittance. You can talk either elaborate exclusively on your first choice, or you can include details about the alternative programs as well. This can help improve your...
