Supplemental Essay: Using a metaphor
951 Words
Describe how one of your hobbies makes you a strong character.
The weight of the world presses down upon me. Expectations, promises, aspirations. I take a breath as I raise the bar of dedication and release it as I lower my doubts and excuses.

How to deal with the stress of applying to college
203 Words
Breathe. Life is not easy, and if you haven't already accepted that fact, now's the time. You can't control the speed of the world around you; the minds, forces, or intentions of everyone else. Sometimes you can't even, really, control your own schedule. But that doesn't mean you're completely lost. It means you are in the same boat as everyone...
