This would be so much easier if I could just lock these children up in the closet. There was one kid in my arms, four pulling on both of my sleeves, and the rest fighting over the single Xbox controller in the middle of the small basement room. I did not ask to take care of these twelve little devils at the same time. It was a curse given to me the day I was born as the youngest of...









Supplemental Essay for BC: Unique question posed by school
338 Words
Were I to be stuck in the middle of nowhere, with no food or water, I would not have any idea what to do. Though school has taught me how to find the derivatives of mathematical functions and how to create a thesis statement, I was never taught how to survive in the great outdoors on my own. At that point, all that I have learned would be useless. Given the opportunity to create my own college course, I would...





Supplemental Essay for BU: “Why us” school essay
167 Words
Just below being known as a smart, little Indian girl, I am known to many as the biggest history nerd in school. Just before tests, people come up and ask me to tutor them in whatever topic the test is on because I tend to be the only one who knew what exactly happened. My favorite unit is from the years 1763-1788, from the end of salutary neglect to the ratification of the Constitution - and Boston was at the...

The purpose of higher education is… … to discover what is most important to students as individuals, rather than focus on a future profession. In college, students should be forced to try new experiences along with studying and taking courses pertaining to their major. College should not just be known as a place of learning but also as a place of experimentation. For example, if a student wishes to become a pre-law major, it would be in their best interest to...





Supplemental Essay for NYU: “Why us” school essay
294 Words
New York City is still the leading financial capital of the world. If I was accepted into NYU, I plan on getting an internship on Wall Street. By doing this, I would be able to link myself with the global economy. It is a dream of mine to become an international commerce attorney. In college, I believe that it is best to start building connections with different high-profile individuals and companies so I can secure myself a position in Wall...





Supplemental Essay for RPI: “Why us” school essay
98 Words
I fell in love with the city of Troy, with its picturesque atmosphere along the water near Albany. The town’s old-century atmosphere gives off a sophisticated and beautiful look. RPI is not only located in this beautiful environment, but it also offers a highly-respected business program which I have been interested in since I heard of it from my cousin many years ago. RPI also has a bhangra team, a type of dance that I am very passionate in...



Supplemental Essay for USC: Amusing anecdote

Despite the general consensus, not all people of Indian descent like curry. In fact, I personally cannot stand having the same type of food more than twice in a row. Even the food that I have been eating for the past seventeen years can, believe it or not, get boring after a while. Now, I should be clear that I don’t dislike curry. My mother is an amazing chef, and is very talented with the spice rack. But sometimes,...

Los Angeles is one of the greatest cultural capitals of the world. If I am accepted into USC, I plan on getting an internship in the city. By doing this, I will be able to link myself with the global diversity. It is a dream of mine to become an international commerce attorney. In college, I believe that it is best to start building connections with different high-profile individuals and companies so I can secure myself a position in Wall...





Supplemental Essay for Yale: “Why us” school essay
81 Words
Even though some do not know what the university specializes in, everyone knows that Yale University means quality. If I were to attend your prestigious university, I would be assured to receive a good education and substantial tutoring systems that would help me pursue a deeper understanding of my area of learning - economics in my case. While Yale certainly has a great currency in name recognition, it is the expansive and thorough education that I am most inclined towards.



Supplemental Essay for Yale: Unique question posed by school

Time I learned something. I never expected to read a Charles Dickens book that I would enjoy. I was aware from a very young age that Charles Dickens was one of the greatest Victorian novelists of all time and that his books were beautiful works of literature. However, I never got to truly experience such greatness until this year when we were forced to read A Tale of Two Cities in class. The actual reading of the book was difficult;...





Supplemental Essay for Harvard: Unique question posed by school
140 Words
Despite its academic appeal, Model United Nations has exposed me to different types of people. Every conference that I participate in, I tingle with excitement for the events that disrupt the conference atmosphere, such as the designated eating times and unmoderated caucuses. These opportunities allow me to make unexpected friends. I have always lived a suburban lifestyle, and have never experienced anything outside of that. Nevertheless, at our most recent conference last December, I met a girl who lived in...

The back row and corner seat was the seat that I gravitated towards throughout my high school career. However, experience has taught me that sitting in the back is not beneficial for my education. As such, if I were to attend the Wharton School of Business, I would make sure that the seat in the front row and center is mine. By sitting there, learning things such as financial analysis and public policy would be easier. Starting freshman year of...
