School Specific Essays

After days of travel, a group of sailors spot an island on the horizon, but something is wrong: their charts say no island should be there. Coming closer, they realize the island is composed of massive buildings, larger than any they had seen before, shaped in a way that can only be called non-Euclidean, defying convexity and concavity. Exploring the island, the sailors make a horrifying discovery, a monster larger than any animal, human-like but also non-human, its face covered...

Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
529 Words
Little pigs, french hens, a family of bears. Blind mice, musketeers, the Fates. Parts of an atom, laws of thought, a guideline for composition. Omne trium perfectum? Create your own group of threes, and describe why and how they fit together. A superstitious sports fan, a disillusioned cook, and a Greek king. Omne trium perfectum? Not exactly… It is the 7th inning and my Cleveland Indians have runners on first and second. At home, my brother and I are trying...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
579 Words
In this essay, please reflect on something you would like us to know about you that we might not learn from the rest of your application. In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams creatively explains the universe through his satirical musings on what drives existence. In any given chapter, Adams’s universe is steered by a divine creator, hyper-intelligent mice from another dimension, sheer randomness, or, of course, the number forty-two. His warped but ultimately irrefutable logic...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
631 Words
How does the University of Chicago, as you know it now, satisfy your desire for a particular kind of learning, community, and future? Please address with some specificity your own wishes and how they relate to UChicago. “Can you give me an example of when that actually happened?” an opposing debater asks during cross-examination. “Of course. During the Reagan Administration…” And I go on to explain diversity drop-off during midterm elections. In the same tournament, I would debate topics ranging...

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
300 Words
Columbia’s acclaimed focus on interdisciplinary education is what I find most appealing about the university. From my school’s IB Program, I have experience with classes that emphasize crossing intellectual boundaries, and I have loved every second of it. IB even offers a class, Theory of Knowledge, dedicated to analyzing the interaction of different areas of knowledge. I am a passionate student of philosophy, especially postmodernism, but I also love studying economics. An avid history buff with a focus...
