Personal Statement for Florida, Utah, U of Portland, Fordham, UConn, GA Tech: Death of a loved one
147 Words
This is the first paragraph of my common app essay: She walked into the kitchen jumping and dancing to no music. She embarrassed me in front of the older kids by declaring her love for me.

Supplemental Essay for GA Tech: “Why us” school essay
148 Words
Tech is a dream. I visited the campus last April and immediately fell in love. The sights, the smells, the footsteps of students walking to their next class, the quiet tapping on a keyboard in the library, the flipping of pages in a textbook.
