Leadership experience
I will be perfectly honest. Leadership is something I have done my best to avoid. I have always been more of a follower. The fact that the higher-ups reviewing these applications for scholarships, colleges, and jobs want all applicants to be leaders has always been a bit silly to me. A leader, by definition, needs followers. If every member of an organization was a leader, who would there be to follow them? Anyway, my leadership experience over the last few...

Supplemental Essay Scholarship application
253 Words
Along our travels, I gained three little brothers and a little sister. Being the oldest means perpetually carrying a lot of weight on your shoulders, but it has its perks. The slight thrill of being the first kid to do practically everything is one of them. A higher level of trust from the folks is another. The latter is also due in part to my nature.

I don’t know exactly what made the admissions office here at BYU select me over someone else, but here are a few ideas: 1. I am from Arlington, MA, a suburb town of Boston. I believe this was a factor because east coast residents are pretty rare here. After all, we have to travel...

1. The tuition here is as good a bargain as you’ll ever get. $5000 a year! And of course there’s the opportunity for scholarships that can make it even less. As I’ve become more financially independent and less reliant on my parents for cash, I’ve come to appreciate that aspect of BYU a lot more. 2. This may be a downside to some people, but I...

Whether I took out loans or applied for scholarships, and my advice
353 Words
My parents paid for tuition in my freshman year, and I paid for tuition this year. For the rest of my education, I will be largely responsible for paying the rest of my college tuition myself. As of right now, I have not needed any student loans, and I want to keep it that way. With compounding interest, the total amount of money you pay for a loan, both the principal and interest, can escalate to a ridiculously high sum. I want to have as little debt as possible because I want to keep as much of my own money...
