College Application Essays

I am a local celebrity—to girls ages four to six. Actually, I’m not, but my alter ego Princess Collette is. I am a princess residing at Tea Party Castle. This birthday party venue entertains young girls with a musical tea party. As a Princess, I dress in a sparkly light pink gown with rhinestones adorning each wrist and ear. I spend the party with the girls while giving them a princess makeover, showing them how to set a...







Supplemental Essay: Explaining low grades/scores
405 Words
My artistic itch kicked in and my hand automatically abandoned the math power point that was projected on the board. A half a page of a play idea later I remembered that there were notes I had needed to copy down. I looked up at the board and the screen had switched to the next slide; I had missed it, again. This happened almost everyday my freshman and sophomore years of high school. There was a constant war between the...

All I had to do was drive up to the place and I fell in love. The small stable is almost surreal.

They need someone...

I gazed at Gatsby’s green light for an entire page...

Becky Brinkerhoff: peace-core member…Becky Brinkerhoff: playwright...performer? Psychologist? Cupcake baker? Similar to many high school seniors, I was anxious about my career path. I had a plethora of passions: activism, writing, performing, designing, academics; however, each one seemed to tug me towards a different direction. I was surrounded by a pile of pieces, but was missing the picture on the front of the puzzle box. I spent many a night as a sleepless senior, tossing and turning, trying to...

I know for me writing these was a very personal experience. I wasn't sure how to best project myself, but I think the key is not trying to be perfect--because you can't. Write about what you are passionate about and what makes you wake up in the morning. Write lots of different essays and pick your favorite, then give it to teachers, guidance councilors, friends, parents, etc. The more eyes that see it the better, but make sure that the...
