Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
428 Words
Variety. Diversity. Choice. Options. This is what attracts me to the University of Michigan, and its College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. I’ve “known” I want to be a diplomat since I started high school, but the problem is that I don’t really know. I love foreign languages, people, and politics, so I just assume that International Relations is the place for me. It could change at any time, though. In the event this happens, I want...

Supplemental Essay Amusing anecdote

Our main attraction is the Tulip Time Festival every May. We’ve also got the huge DeZwaan Windmill, Veldheer Tulip Farm, a blue delft factory, and an unusually high population of tall women. Also, literally everyone owns a pair of wooden shoes. This enlightening Dutch influence...

Supplemental Essay Issue of personal significance
532 Words
Lila Ramirez-Castillo singlehandedly created one of my most strongly held beliefs. Her influence has made me incredibly passionate about illegal immigration, an issue I will now be dedicated to for life. She opened my eyes to the fact that I need to be grateful for everything I have… every single day. It was an entire paradigm shift when she told me her story. I’d never knowingly met an illegal before. At the age of eight Lila came into the...
