Personal Statement: Leadership experience

Achieving academic success is top priority for me. Because I thrive in stressful environments, I enjoy being extremely busy. I am very organized and can handle a lot of different things at once. Mount Carmel Academy is about an hour from my home so I spend a couple of hours a day driving. In addition, our Student Government is extremely time-consuming, often meeting three days a week after school and most weekends. I am able to manage all of this...

There is so much more out there. Those are the words I live by in everything that I do. I grew up in a small town outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. I love where I live and I love the people I have come to know. Yet when every single person I knew in elementary school went to the same small high school, I knew that wasn’t the direction I wanted to go. Why? Because there is so much...

There are so many things I want to do… things for myself, my community, the world around me, etc. The key to this, in my opinion, is education. I have chosen to attend the University of Notre Dame, which is 1,000 miles from my home in New Orleans and 1,000 miles from anyone and everyone I have ever known. I chose Notre Dame because of its diversity and its attachment to the world. There are so many places I want to go...

Supplemental Essay: Amusing anecdote
722 Words
In different situations, certain similarities link us together. When I go to lunch at school, I feel connected to the people in my friend group and isolated from the rest of the cafeteria. When I go to a school function, I only feel connected to the seniors. At an Archdiocesan event, all the girls from my high school bond together. In another part of the country, I feel connected to southerners. In a foreign country, I feel connected to those...

The essays are your chance to show the real you. They are the chance to make these admissions directors (these REAL people) understand who you are and why you fit into their school. They have already read about your grades and your work experience and your involvement. So now tell them something that makes you stand out. Talk about something you love and give them a reason to fight for you at the admissions table. For example, I love travel...
