Personal Statement: Transition to adulthood
657 Words
My fifth day in New York City, I turned 18. But it took me another two weeks to discover what being an adult actually meant to me. I was sitting on a park bench on a muggy summer day in Washington Square Park, waiting for a friend, when a ragged-looking man sat down near me and, noting my NYU sweatshirt, started to question me about what classes I was taking. Unsure if he was addressing me, and not really wanting to...

I spent countless days and nights all fall and winter writing these essays. It wasn't easy and I rewrote most of them at least ten times. However, in the end it was worth it.

Do your absolute best because for most...

What I’d change about my application process
323 Words
If I could go through the college application process again (not that I'd ever wish to do that), I would have applied myself a little more. My mom was always pushing me to be more involved but, like so many teenagers do, I resisted her and avoided the topic at all costs. That's not to say I didn't apply or do well or anything like that.
