Personal Statement for Princeton, Cornell, Brown, Duke, UNC, Emory, GA Tech, Florida, Miami, UPenn, Bryn Mawr, Northwestern, WashU: Failure experience, Near death experience, One moment that changed you
674 Words
The Rainbow After the Storm My fingers were racing across the keyboard as I put the final touches on my English paper when all of a sudden—BAM!—my laptop went still. Frozen. Stuck. The only movement remaining was the rainbow pinwheel loading icon. No matter how hard I clicked the mouse or how loud I screamed at the screen, my laptop refused to budge. Helpless, I prayed that my work would be saved as I waited for the wheel...

Supplemental Essay for Brown: “Why us” school essay
162 Words
To me, Brown is a place of freedom. It is a place where I can freely study whatever fascinates me. Through Brown’s unique Open Curriculum, I can take courses that genuinely pique my interest—ranging from “Modern-Political-Thought” to "Anthropology-of- Food.” Brown is also a place where I can freely express myself. Whether I’m dancing with the Badmaash Company or raising awareness about gender inequality, I know that I can be myself and have my voice heard. Additionally, surrounded...

Supplemental Essay for Duke: Diversity statement
266 Words
Lessons I’ve Learned Growing Up in an Indian Household: 1. There is no such thing as “no” when it comes to food. My grandmother may look innocent, but be forewarned: she will be the greatest foe to your diet plans. As she sets her chole bhature down on the table, your mouth will immediately start watering. Now, if you somehow manage to resist the beautiful aroma of fried food, my Nani will find a way to make you eat it....

Supplemental Essay for Brown: Unique question posed by school
122 Words
Communities or groups: pick one and tell us why it is important to you, and how it has shaped you. Each year, I celebrate three New Years: January 1st, Diwali, and my favorite... the Chinese Spring Festival. For the past three years, I've been performing at the Spring Festival Gala. By celebrating this auspicious festival, I also get to become a part of the Chinese-American community. It's the one time in the year where I get to wear my traditional...

Supplemental Essay for Princeton, Brown, Duke, UNC, Emory: Unique question posed by school
168 Words
Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences. My lengha skirt bellows across the stage as I spin into formation. My hair cascades down as I arch my back. My heart pounds even as the music fades. The lights dim and the curtains are drawn in—but my smile does not falter. I feel one with the stage, the audience, and my culture. But Indian dancing has given me much more than this feeling of euphoria....

College Admissions Advice

What I’d change about my application process
292 Words
I'll be honest. Applying to colleges was extremely stressful. There is a lot of pressure to produce essays that capture your personality, passions, and accomplishments. All of the work you've put in over the past 4+ years seems to depend solely on these essays and the picture you paint for the admissions officer. Now while this is partly true, take a deep breath and remember who you really are--outside of the college application process. Write your heart out, be yourself, and be reassured by the fact that you...
