Personal Statement: Creative personal story

The moment was fleeting, and I knew I had to soak it up. Quick, quick, before it's all over. I pulled my favorite red scarf tighter around my neck and tried to take in as much as I could of my surroundings. Grey clouds drifted in lazily and settled a few miles down the Seine, somewhere around the Louvre. Posh French women hurried past; a Vespa zoomed by, its driver's long hair flowing behind him; a couple strolled by hand...

I've always had a love for writing (in fact, for a long time I wanted to major in English and become an author) so I fortunately didn't feel as if the personal statements and supplemental essays required by all the schools I applied to was very harrowing. In helping my friends, who were going through the same process as I was, the best advice I could give them was just to not rush into writing your essays; instead, reflect on...
