Travis (8:30PM): “I’m very frustrated… I hate physics so much right now” The assignment was simple: make a graph in excel. Throughout my high school career I’ve encompassed 12 AP classes under my belt. A typical day for me is trudging through seven hours of rigorous AP classes, hours of college level homework, and five hours of sleep before I wake up and do it all again. That is my life as a student and I take it on...

If I’ve learned anything from my history classes in high school, it's that location is the most important factor to a society’s success. In looking for a school in a perfect location that will help me find my own success, I found BU. The city of Boston is a beautiful city that leaves much to be explored and many adventures to be had. There is so much history rooted there and being the huge American history fan I...

National History Bowl is a quiz competition testing students' knowledge of history. To qualify for the national competition in Washington DC, one must qualify at a regional competition. Unfortunately, during my first year in the competition, my school refused to fund our team’s trip. This was incredibly defeating to us. However, it just motivated me to study harder so we could qualify again and actually attend. This year we needed to win a playoff match in order to qualify....

In the past, those who rose to power typically did so by carrying out dishonorable acts. Before they even reached their position of power they were corrupted. While this may still be partially true today, since the dawn of civilization, those without power have been corrupted in order to survive. Many of the atrocities committed throughout human history haven’t been done by a good person corrupted but by a madman given insurmountable power to do as they please. However,...

My entire life I’ve loved math. My mom claims that I taught myself basic math long before it was ever introduced to me in a classroom. On the days I stayed home from preschool, I wouldn’t play with toys or watch television; instead I would spend hours working tirelessly to finish math workbooks. Though I don’t remember it well, it’s not hard for me to believe that I was seemingly born to be the math aficionado...

Throughout my life, I've always had anxiety problems and trouble making decisions. So one can imagine that the college process has only fueled this and escalated it to be much worse. My current seed of doubt has sprouted from the choice of whether I want to go away for school or to stay home. I’ve always been very close with my family and being away from them for extended periods of time fills me with dread. However, what has...

Simply being in the presence of my three best friends brings me the utmost joy. Many people get sick of each other after a while but with them, I never will. While others get bored very easily, just sitting in a room with them would be enough for me. Whether it’s simply talking about nonsense, driving around in silence, or doing something crazy, every moment for me is sheer ecstasy. I like to see myself as more of a...

Since I can remember, I’ve always been a person filled with self doubt and anxiety. For most of my life, I thought this to be a normal feeling and how everybody else felt. I met Chelsea on the first day of middle school and for the next two years I knew her as the girl who sat with me on the bus and the girl who sat at the table behind me during lunch. We weren’t really friends...

Cornell- Met with a local alumni at Starbucks. It was actually this kid in my school who I'm pretty friendly with's Dad. It was mainly just asking about me, and if I had any questions for him. Didn't really determine if I got in. Think it went pretty well. I was nervous but it wasn't stressful. Villanova- This was for a scholarship that I got. Asked me about my extracurricular activities, what I...
